The architecture of Scotland in its European setting: 1660-1750

The conference will explore the architecture of Scotland’s early classical period,
1660-1750, set against the backdrop of European sister cultures. It will re-examine the
work of major Scottish architects including Sir William Bruce, Mr James Smith, the
Mylne family, William Adam and their contemporaries: builders, garden designers
and clients. Topics explored will include country houses and their landscaped settings,
urban civic and domestic buildings, military buildings, and engineering structures.
The nature and value of Scotland’s international connections, particularly with
England and mainland Europe, provide the main contexts for this period during which
Scottish architects fully embraced classicism for the first time and became strongly
influential in shaping taste elsewhere.

Deadline: 19 Nov 2014
