At present, there is a disconnection between academic and public perception of Modern heritage, particularly Brutalist architecture.

Many authorities include 20th century buildings in their listing programmes, but there remains apprehension about protecting anything but the most well preserved icons of the Modern era.

This one-day workshop utilises the processes and experiences of designing and making 3D-printed 'souvenirs of place' from customised building blocks, focusing on the Edinburgh legacy of eponymous architect Sir Basil Spence.
