Around 150 recent Edinburgh buildings recorded on a postcard.

Each postcard contained a description of the building by its architect, and a critique by celebrated Scottish filmmaker Murray Grigor.

Visitors could select from the assembled stacks of postcards arranged within the perspex frames

Exhibition constructed by Fantastic Fabrications

Editor, Adrian Welch – it was a pleasure working Murray Grigor on the postcard texts, the majority were written by him but for some buildings he wasn’t so familiar with I wrote the text.

A big thanks to Fantastic Fabrications who stepped in at the last minute when the initial contractor struggled with understanding the brief and the deadline.
