High Street exhibition launched
December 13 2011Mary Portas publishes a long awaited High Street renewal plan.
Sponsored by Architecture + Design Scotland, the event aims to showcase the past, present and future of our thoroughfares through a series of films depicting life and opinions on 15 towns and cities ranging from Sanqhuar to Glasgow.
The exhibition also looks at how the design of our streets has changed over the years in response to technological advances such as the car and refrigerator as well as the changing expectations of shoppers.
Speaking at the launch ,A+DS chair Karen Anderson said: “Our local High Streets are important public spaces, vital in establishing thriving communities and local economic growth. The future of our High Streets is a highly topical issue and this exhibition shows the High Street’s evolution. We hope this exhibition will provoke the visitor to consider what the future may hold for the High Street.”
The exhibition runs in gallery 2 of the Lighthouse until April 17.
