Abstract

REVI EWS August 2000, Architecture at the Edinburgh International Festival Each year the Edinburgh Festival endures an adjectival overload of epic proportions: a random selection culled from the plethora of press reviews might include magical, magnificent, mammoth, moving and multicultural. Sadly the architectural element is more aptly described as marginal, albeit meritorious. Last year, as in most years, Edinburgh was indebted to the Royal Fine Art Commission for Scotland (rfacs) and the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (rias); they shared the honours (again) and are tireless in their efforts to foster an enthusiasm for architecture as the supposed 'Mother of the Arts'. The Festival also boasted a number of thematic discussions at the Book Festival and a handful of related fringe exhibitions such as Dis-location of the Chair at the Matthew Gallery, Philippe Starck:forjoufrom me at Inhouse and Modern Shoppingfor the Home at Concrete Butterfly. The focus, however, remains resolutely with the rias and rfacs.
