Lecture by Neil Baxter, Hon FRIAS, The Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland
Founded in 1916 at a dinner honouring Sir Robert Rowand Anderson, the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (RIAS) was, with Holyrood Palace, a main beneficiary of Anderson’s Will, five years later. For its centenary, the Incorporation is preparing the largest celebration of the ‘mother of the arts’ ever seen – with public events the length and breadth of Scotland, highlighting the crucial importance of a quality built environment to all of our lives – and to generate a lot of fun!
