Harris Tweed Leads Scotland's First Architecture and Design Celebration

14-Dec-2015 2:04 PM | Kimberley White

A celebration of Harris Tweed, a Renaissance fashion show in the Great Hall of Stirling Castle, a festival of light in the historic heart of Aberdeen city centre and an Expo at Edinburgh Airport will be part of Scotland’s first ever year of architecture and design.

A night-time art event to mark the rebirth of one of the country’s forgotten architectural masterpieces, the creation of flocks of origami-style birds for different parts of the country and a project which will see Scotland’s national orchestra help create a new sound and light installation for one of Edinburgh’s finest Georgian squares are all in the 12-month-programme.

More than 420 events are to be held the length and breadth of the country for the Scottish Government-backed Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design, which follows celebrations of food and drink, the country’s wild landscapes and the cultural scene.

The three-month Clo Mor Festival of Harris Tweed, to be held across the Outer Hebrides, will feature showcases of designers and producers, demonstrations and talks, film screenings and guided tours of the rugged landscape.
