RIAS claim Festival of Architecture success one year on
July 26 2017
The figures, compiled by Culture Republic, are contained within a breakdown of the year-long event which it is said generated £8.8m for the economy.
David Dunbar PPRIAS, chair, Festival of Architecture 2016, remarked: “The Festival of Architecture 2016 was Scotland’s largest ever single artform event. Year-long and Scotland-wide, it welcomed over 1.575million visitors, reaching parts no previous Festival has reached. Islands and remote communities held mini-festivals and small towns welcomed visiting exhibitions. 126 partner organisations, including the Children’s Parliament, the National Galleries and National Museums of Scotland, generated over 460 public-facing events.”
A follow-up 2017 festival, smaller in scale, will include a reprise of the exhibition Adventures in Space and a touring exhibition of residential design between 2000 and 2020, undertaken throughout the month of September.
