The New Town of Edinburgh

An Architectural Celebration

Ed. Clarisse Godard Desmarest

Built in the mid-18th century as the city expanded beyond its medieval core, Edinburgh’s New Town is the physical embodiment of Scottish Enlightenment thinking. These essays by leading architectural historians consider the social, intellectual, political and economic factors that led to its creation; its present state of conservation; the history of town planning in Scotland; and the subsequent establishment of new towns elsewhere, notably Dunedin in New Zealand.
