Happy Homes: Cooperation, Community and the Edinburgh Colonies with Richard Rodger
Mon, 12 Dec 2022
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 the housing, their owners, occupants, and other characteristics to reveal a new perspective on this housing type. Edinburgh folk have a rosy impression of the Colonies. This will be a hard-nosed re-assessment – prepare to be disappointed!
