Big Issue 20th July 2017

The first home, which was designed by architect Jonathan Avery of Tiny House Scotland, is set to go on public view in St Andrews Square for the duration of the Edinburgh Festival throughout August before it is placed in the village alongside the other dwellings before Christmas.

Great to see the update to the project published in the most relevant journal – the Big Issue!

“The first home, which was designed by architect Jonathan Avery of Tiny House Scotland, is set to go on public view in St Andrews Square for the duration of the Edinburgh Festival throughout August before it is placed in the village alongside the other dwellings before Christmas.”

Funnily enough, back in the early 90’s when I started making furniture I did seriously consider going back to education to become an architect!  But now it would appear I have achieved that anyway…of course the root of the term architect comes from the Greek  arkhi (chief) and tekton (builder) and was used as such by traditional timber framers to designate the person who had the experience and knowledge to size and design traditional joined timber frames.
