The Ideal Hut Show, part of the Festival of Architecture, has begun its tour of Scotland and is currently on at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh until 30 May. It consists of 18 sheds which have been redesigned by UK architects and designers - highlights include a tartan hut and an ‘exploded axonometric’.
Next top is Glasgow Botanic Gardens (3-26 June), then University of Dundee Botanic Garden (2-26 July), Inverness Botanic Gardens (30 July-28 August) and Perth, King Edward Street (10-25 September). At the end of the tour they will be auctioned for charity.
“This exhibition shows what architects can do when confronted by a creative challenge and a very small budget," said Neil Baxter, Secretary of The Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland, who curated the exhibition. "15 of these huts are designed by architects, two by leading artists and one by our own, Dr Who obsessive, graphic designer. They have been built, brilliantly by Jim Bryceland and Peter Dickson, both renowned Scottish craftsmen in their own right."
