Assembly Hall, Edinburgh

I was commissioned to draw a section and plan through the Church of Scotland’s Assembly Hall in Edinburgh. The neo-gothic building hosts the Church of Scotland’s annual General Assembly, and sits on the Mound, due east of the Castle. It’s twin turrets can be seen from Princes Street. The section shows the route from the entrance lobby, which is between these, then in to the New College Quadrangle, which is flanked by New College buildings. A statue of John Knox,┬áthe founder of the founder of the Presbyterian Church of Scotland stands in the quadrangle. A step set of steps leads up to a lobby space, and onto the Black and White Corridor, so called because of it’s distinctive tiled floor. Doors lead into the Hall itself, with it’s distinctive roof structure, panelling and seating. The street to the rear is the Royal Mile. From the section, one can appreciate this ceremonial route, and how the architecture changes in volume and sits within the topography. The plan enhances one’s understanding of this historic building.
