INSPIRING CITIES: NEW DESIGN IN A WORLD HERITAGE CITY
Organisation of World Heritage Cities - NW region Conference, Edinburgh
The themes for the conference are contextual design, public realm, and World Heritage Sites and settings, which are real issues for all World Heritage Sites at the moment. Vienna and Cologne have recently come under scrutiny from UNESCO for allowing high buildings close to their sites. In Liverpool the proposed Woods Bagot Tower has been heavily criticised by English Heritage because of its impact on the city's newly designated World Heritage Site. The aim of the conference is to bring heritage and development more closely together and to enable increased understanding on both sides.
The first day is themed as the 'Edinburgh experience', and is being offered as a stand alone event for day delegates. Keynote speakers include Sir Terry Farrell the Edinburgh design champion, Hal Moggeridge talking about the city's tall buildings policy and Professor Brian Evans on the importance of public realm design. The conference is sponsored by Edinburgh World Heritage, City of Edinburgh Council, Historic Scotland and Architecture and Design Scotland.
