University of Edinburgh

Test shot: Fujifilm Finepix F100fd, automatic mode. Old College of the University of Edinburgh in the city's old town which is a World Heritage Site. The building was designed by Robert Adam.


Old College was constructred intermittently over many years and was interrupted by costs and war. Robert Adam, the architect died before the building was completed. The subsequent construction was based on design of William Playfair another neoclassical architect whose plan was based on Robert Adam original design.


The college was without a dome for about 100 years. It was later added based on design by another architect: Sir Robert Rowand Anderson.


The quadrangle is never completed to these days.
