Professor Ian Ritchie CBE RA Hon FRIAS
Including contributions from associated professional bodies.
In the first of a series of new lectures and workshops the EAA welcomes Ian Ritchie, an architect whose international practice has undertaken the master-planning of cities, national museums and realised monuments. Ian will address the City as a manifestation of collective and individual memory and forgetting – from skyline to plinth – and explore the idea of designing the future within the context of a contemporary complex, intellectual and economically driven city.
The aim of Ian’s lecture is that architects will come to a greater awareness of their true importance to society. And consequently make an effort to better understand society and its evolution, and so be in a position to intelligently anticipate future social, spatial and infrastructure challenges.
Following Ian Ritchie’s lecture there will be contributions from local consultants and groups leading on to a workshop which will look at Edinburgh at large, and what we can collectively contribute and change to make a better future.
