Lothian Street / Potterrow realignment

Scope and Content

Mixed collection of working drawings and plans (maximum dimension 86cm x 122cm) depicting the creation of Bristo Square in Edinburgh. There is a 3-dimensional pencil drawing, on tracing paper, of an oblique bird's eye view of the square and its adjacent buildings. 2 coloured (in thick felt-tip pen) paper stylised manuscript plans of the area. The first shows the proposed surface of the square, the second shows the site-lines around the area of the square. There are 2 sheets of small-scale pencil drawn sections across the square. These are on tracing paper, have felt-tip pen highlighting and labels for the main features. There is a large scale pen and ink drawing, on tracing paper with "letratone" to indicate surface detail. This was a working drawing for the final item: a copy of a large scale architectural plan drawing, on textured paper, of the whole square in the context of the surrounding University buildings.
