To Russia with Love - British architects, landscape designers and gardeners in Russia
Joint Autumn lecture with the Architectural Heritage Association Scotland
Down the centuries, many enterprising individuals from Britain – particularly from Scotland – have found their fortunes in Russia. They first served the Tsars as doctors, and as officers of the army and navy. But by the C18th it was as architects, landscape designers, gardeners and engineers that the British made their mark, leaving a lasting influence on palaces, gardens and townscapes, much of which can still be appreciated today.
The lecture by Dr Patricia Andrew is informed by her personal experience of visits to Russia and her talks to international groups travelling to St Petersburgh.
