“Happy Homes – Cooperation, Community and the Edinburgh Colonies” with Richard Rodger
Mon, 11 Dec 2023
A talk by Professor Richard Rodger on this much-loved and distinctly Edinburgh housing form
Venue: Online & in-person at Augustine United Church, 41 George IV Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1EL
Cost: £6 / £2 for students
Edinburgh and Leith colony housing represents a very distinctive, immediately recognisable built form. Or so you might think. In fact there is considerable divergence in design, in prices (rents) and in the occupants. In this talk, Richard Rodger dissects the background to colony housing, their owners, occupants, and other characteristics, to reveal a new perspective on this housing type.
