Writing Cities: cities of our dreams

Every city is a creative imagining, a utopian dream where, hopefully, we will live happily ever after. Ishbel McFarlane created Plan, an interactive game to get people thinking about the complexities of creating New Towns. Honor Gavin and Adam Kaasa’s project (Un)common Building explores city possibilities, urban memory and built form. Join them for a discussion about the built environment, the importance of history and the regenerative power of storytelling.

Artists, architects and academics investigate the city through speculative fiction and celebrate how writers inspire a city’s future. Edinburgh’s New Town is 200 years old and authors discuss the city and the culture that inspired it.
