As lockdown restrictions in Glasgow start to ease, thoughts are inevitably turning to how the city will continue to chart its path out of the pandemic. With the COP26 climate change conference coming our way in November, how can the city best deal with the challenges ahead?
In our evening lecture series ‘Transforming Glasgow’, we are looking to the past for inspiration and possible solutions. The series focuses on how Glasgow has changed and reinvented itself in a variety of ways from the latter half of the 20th century onwards to today. How have these changes come about and what has the impact been? What lessons can be learned?
Following the screening of Prof Walker’s interview in July, on August 25th we will hear from Ranald MacInnes, from Historic Environment Scotland. Ranald will share his own thoughts and opinions about how conservation in Glasgow has developed over the intervening years.
Ranald MacInnes is Head of Place and Publishing at Historic Environment Scotland, and a former Head of Heritage Management with responsibilities which have included advising the Scottish Government on planning and historic environment issues. He began his career with English Heritage in the 1980s. He has a special interest in 20th-century architecture and planning. He is an Honorary Research Fellow of the Institute of Art History, University of Glasgow, Visiting Lecturer in Architectural Design for the Conservation of Built Heritage at the University of Strathclyde and has taught conservation at the Mackintosh School of Architecture. He has published many books, essays, articles and reviews on architectural history and conservation. He has played a leading research-based advisory and regulatory role in many significant conservation and architectural projects.
