Event Details

To accompany the popular exhibition Mono 68, this event features a series of short talks followed by a discussion exploring how planning has changed in Dundee and other cities over the years. Why was so much of the city demolished and are we more sympathetic towards conservation of the built environment today?

The event will start in the Lamb Gallery then move into Room T4 for four presentations:

Jack Searle of Dundee Civic Trust will describe his memories of planning in Dundee in the 1960s and discuss the decisions made at that time.

Barbara Illsley, who recently retired as a senior lecturer in Town & Regional Planning, will discuss Whitfield as a case study of development, demolition and regeneration.

Deborah Peel, Professor of Architecture & Planning, will discuss how attitudes to urban planning have changed over the years, and the increasing recognition of the value of conservation.

Finally, Gordon Birrell of the Housing department at Dundee City Council will describe the renovation programme for Dundee’s remaining multis.

Attendance is free but seating is limited so please reserve a place using Eventbrite. Please meet in the Lamb Gallery.

The Mono 68 exhibition runs until 21 March and is open Mon-Fri 09.30-20.30 Sat 09.30-16.30.
