Scottish Historic Buildings Trust is a charity that secures the future of under-used historic buildings across Scotland by expertly restoring them for the nation and finding new uses that can regenerate local communities and the historic environment. 

Scottish Historic Buildings Trust is in the final stages of fundraising to transform Riddle’s Court, an important 16th century merchant’s house on the Royal Mile, into the Patrick Geddes Centre.   Patrick Geddes was responsible for the restoration of Riddle's Court into a Hall of Residence in the late 19th century.  The building will close later this year as part of a two year restoration project.

Edinburgh's anonymous paper sculptor has long been inspired by Patrick Geddes’ ideas  and has delivered a very special package to Riddle's Court.   For further information click here.   To view the sculpture visit Riddle's Court, 322 Lawnmarket, Edinburgh, EH1 2PG on Thursday 13th of November between 2 and 8pm.
