Docomomo-EAHN Conference on Mass Housing

I’m off to Edinburgh Art College this evening to see a screening of Cumbernauld Hit, a flim made by Cumbernauld Development Corporation in 1977.  It was an unusual (and I’m not sure entirely successful) experiment with making an espionage type film in order to promote the virtues of living in Cumbernauld!

Some of it can be viewed on the Scottish Screen Archive website: http://ssa.nls.uk/film.cfm?fid=4294  It’s definitely worth taking a look.

The event kicks off a conference on Mass Housing organised by Docomomo Scotland and European Architectural History Network (EAHN).
