The tercentenary of the Act of Union offers an ideal opportunity to look at relations between England and Scotland in architecture. This topic will be addressed in a pair of conferences and tours, focusing on architectural exchanges between the two nations from the Middle Ages to the present day, and across the spectrum from royal palaces to garden suburbs. The first conference, to be held in Edinburgh on 14-15 September 2007, will examine English influences on Scottish architecture, followed by a second conference in London on 5-6 October 2007, which will concentrate on Scottish influences on English architecture. In each case a day of talks and debate will be followed by a day of visits. The events are being jointly organised by Ian Campbell of the Edinburgh College of Art, and Andrew Saint, General Editor of The Survey of London.
