A virtual talk to explore the history of two of Inverness’ most architecturally important buildings will take place next week.
The presentation, organised by Wasps Inverness Creative Academy and Inverness Townscape Heritage Project, will focus on two of the city’s most historic buildings, Rose Street Foundry and Midmills Campus.
Conservation architect Calum Maclean will lead the talk on Thursday from 3pm.
The virtual event coincides with the launch of Mr MacLean’s latest book, The Architecture of Inverness.
Mr MacLean, who owns MAAC Studio, will look into the history of architects Ross & Macbeth, focusing on the buildings which were once the home to an actual iron works as well as the Inverness Royal Academy.
He said: “Alexander Ross is one of the Highland’s one most celebrated architects. Inverness expanded dramatically during the Victorian period and Ross was responsible for designing many of our most important streets and buildings including Inverness Cathedral.
“In 1887 he entered into a long-running partnership with his then assistant Robert John Macbeth, creating the Ross & Macbeth practice.
“I’m looking forward to sharing details of their iconic work during this talk and bringing the beauty of their work to people at home.”
