In Conversation with Architect John Joseph Burns of Holmes Miller (Architecture & Planning practice)
- Origin of tenements in Glasgow and Edinburgh.
- Analysing Tenemets as an archetype for living.
- Architect John Joseph Burns presenting his research into the history and development of the Glasgow Tenement as an architectural typology that defines the city.
- The political and social impact on the aesthetics of the Tenements throughout Scotland.
The sit-down conversation was an inquiry into the origins of Tenements that related back to my Stage 4: A Visual Research Project. To structure the Hour-long conversation where we branched into the above-mentioned topics, I had prepared six questions. It was a very informative conversation that gave me the last push to complete my research and sparked a new interest in the socio-political influences of Castel like aesthetic in Scotland.
