This text combines a factual description of the key architects and their work in each period of Scottish history with a wide-ranging analysis of their social, ideological and historical context. Since Scotland has often been closely involved with new trends in "Western" architecture, the book highlights the interaction of Scottish developments with the broader European and international movements. From the beginnings of the Renaissance in the 15th century to the present day, this survey covers the post-medieval history of architecture in Scotland.show more
