This newsletter leads with an image of Riddles Court archway, where our Concrete Walk by Design began last week. It is inscribed with the legend ‘Vivendo Discimus’: By Living We Learn. This call to action by Sir Patrick Geddes, issued more than 100 years ago, serves to complement his triad ‘Hand Heart Head’ as our new programme moves into action on the ground, to support and enable local and compassionate calls for well-being by design.
Core within our new programme, we explore the relationship between photography and the built environment. In this endeavour, we are delighted to partner with the Scottish Society for the History of Photography.
