ROBERT ADAM'S PUBLIC BUILDINGS

ROBERT ADAM'S PUBLIC BUILDINGS Robert Adam's desire to build on a monumental scale is nowhere more obvious than in his various designs for public buildings and civic schemes. Concentrating mainly on his late work in Edinburgh and Glasgow, this chapter deals with some of his most ambitious projects and shows how they relate to the Scottish architectural tradition in form, style and scale. The breadth of Adam's vision is demonstrated not only by the designs themselves but also by his sense of urbanism. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Architectural Heritage Edinburgh University Press

Abstract

Robert Adam's desire to build on a monumental scale is nowhere more obvious than in his various designs for public buildings and civic schemes. Concentrating mainly on his late work in Edinburgh and Glasgow, this chapter deals with some of his most ambitious projects and shows how they relate to the Scottish architectural tradition in form, style and scale. The breadth of Adam's vision is demonstrated not only by the designs themselves but also by his sense of urbanism.
