Appleton Tower

Appleton Tower

Built in 1966, Appleton Tower was originally designed by Edinburgh architects Reiach and Hall. The loss of Georgian buildings to accommodate its prominent outline on Edinburgh’s skyline created controversy which still continues. LDN Architects and BuroHappold replaced the original, defective façade with an innovative, high performance envelope, re-presenting the tower to the city and maximising its value to the University.
