Edinburgh Skyline Exhibition

There is an exhibition going on about Edinburgh Skylines. This might be a good thing to go to if you are interested in the skyline changes at Quatermile for example. This exhibition is also forming a platform for a public consultation about the skylines report.

I've copied a bit of the blurb from the website, but there's more there; particularly about the consultation part of it. I've also copied over the dates (not into the calendar - there are too many of them and I got bored! I just added a couple to represent it).

Brief Review
Easy to understand exhibition with photos for each ‘key view’ and a map of Edinburgh showing proposed view cones. Emphasis on protecting and enhancing views rather than a blanket limit on tall buildings ie focus on ‘views’ not ‘height’. Refreshing that what could be loosely termed ‘populist’ or ‘informal’ views such as from the seafront next to Matalan (Seafield) into town are included, not just ‘establishment’ or ‘traditional’ views around the city centre favoured by both tourists and powerful people who live and work in the Old and New Towns. This is further supported by views of peripheral streets with captions reminding us that even mundane suburban streets have often been designed with views to key landmarks – such as the Castle – in mind
