Antony C Wolffe is a retired architect based in Gatehouse. In January 2015, after a 70 year wait, he was honoured by the City of Edinburgh with the City of Edinburgh Civic Design Medal. This exhibition was produced by The Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS) and shown in January at the Edinburgh College of Art, where at a special reception Antony was presented with his medal. We are delighted to be able to bring this exhibition of Antony's student drawings to Gatehouse, his home town.
