Engaging the Local Community
Although membership in the Society of Architectural Historians is required to participate in the SAH 2017 Annual International Conference
—our first meeting outside North America in over 40 years—the conference program includes tours and events that the public is welcome to attend. Engaging the local community and providing a forum for dialogue are priorities for SAH. These public programs are part of the Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology 2017. If you have questions, please see the FAQ
or contact us at email@example.com

The SAH 2017 conference includes 33 public architecture tours in and around Glasgow that are scheduled throughout the duration of the conference. Led by local historians, architects and other heritage experts, the tours will explore everything from Glasgow’s Victorian West End to Merchant City, from Scotland’s vernacular cottages to its famed castles, the works of Glasgow’s great architects Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson, as well as the UNESCO World Heritage sites of New Lanark and Edinburgh’s Old and New Towns.
With the exception of the Sunday Edinburgh tours, all tours will depart from the University of Strathclyde Technology & Innovation Centre (TIC) in the Level 2 Foyer. Times noted for each tour indicate the time the tour will depart from TIC and the return time.
