Take the high road
Astragal left the capital behind and took off on a trip north of the border last week in order to join the 500 delegates attending the annual Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (RIAS) conference in Glasgow. The wildly successful event, which featured contributions from such luminaries as Ken Shuttleworth, Gordon Murray, Alan Dunlop, Glenn Murcutt and Fumihiko Maki, took place in the wonderful Old Parish Church in Govan. In fact, the building's architect, Robert Rowand Anderson, was one of the founding members of the RIAS.
All in all, an interesting venue for an interesting conference.
