Urban Area Management

Urban Area Management

Date: 25 Apr 2017 from 17:45 to 19:00.

Venue: National Library of Scotland, George IV Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1EW.

Organiser: RSA Fellows’ MCICH Network.

Urban area management falls in the space between proactive planning and reactive heritage preservation – the conservation of objects within the urban realm for the benefit of future generations. Competing priorities require the protection of all interests, not least societal well-being and to avoid Subtopia.

In an event designed to fall within Scotland’s Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design, RSA Fellows Adam Wilkinson (CEO, Edinburgh World Heritage) and Dr Deborah Mays (CEO, The Heritage Place) will explore why urban places need protection, and what we are looking after and for whom. Fuller speaker biographies will be issued at the event.

A joint event with National Library of Scotland (NLS) – enter via the fully accessible Main Entrance on George IV Bridge.

Doors open at 17:45 for registration, with the discussion starting at 18:00.
