VENUE: BOARDROOM @ EVOLUTION HOUSE, 78 WEST PORT, EH1 2LE

‘Basil Spence: the Dunbar connection.’
Spence’s perspective for his harbour housing scheme at Dunbar is a well known image. However, his involvement with the burgh, which spanned some twenty years, was much greater than this particular development, in both professional and personal terms.

Clive B Fenton is an architectural historian living in Edinburgh. He was research fellow for the Percy Johnson-Marshall archive project at the University of Edinburgh, and for the Basil Spence archive project at the RCAHMS/University of Warwick. He is currently Secretary of DoCoMoMo Scotland, an organisation dedicated to the study of the Modern Movement in architecture.
