About us

INTEREST in Edinburgh’s built environment has arguably never been higher than it is now.

Whether it is housing or the design of our streets.

With construction taking place all over the city – including several house-building schemes – it is vital that the city learns from the past and strives for high-quality, perhaps radical, solutions in the future.

There is unquestionably an appetite for meaningful discussion about how the city might evolve – debate that requires to be courteous and considered, as well as inspiring.

Our ‘reads’ comprise a mix of news, features (including city initiatives from around the world), opinion, debate and statistics.

Because we have chosen not to exercise the option of providing a comments board, readers are welcome to contact us with a possible article of their own.
