New Lanark builds up for double exhibition this summer!
From traditional building materials, to Scotland’s ‘100 best buildings’ New Lanark is hosting two of 2016’s most prominent architectural exhibitions, ‘Building Scotland’ and ‘Scotstyle’ over the summer period with free entry for both. The two exhibitions will run simultaneously from 2nd June in the River Room within the Institute for the Formation of Character at New Lanark. This is a particularly apt location for the exhibitions to be viewed as the Institute, which is one of New Lanark’s most iconic buildings, is celebrating its Bicentenary in 2016 after being opened on 1 January 1816 by Robert Owen himself.
