Visitor centre takes centre stage in new book

Rosslyn Chapel has featured in many books over the years but now its visitor centre is taking centre stage in a new publication.

The visitor centre, which was opened in 2012, is one of ten case studies in the book ‘Designing for Heritage: contemporary visitor centres’, written by Ruth Dalton. In it, she describes the centre as a ‘small space upon which has been lavished considerable thought and attention to detail’. The author describes the exterior of the building, drawing out comparisons with the previous visitor centre building, and highlights where the Chapel itself has inspired the new building, bringing ‘an ecclesiastical quality to the space’.

Rosslyn Chapel’s visitor centre was designed by Page\Park Architects  and was officially opened in May 2012 by HRH The Duchess of Rothesay.

The book ‘Designing for Heritage: contemporary visitor centres’ by Ruth Dalton is published by Lund Humphries.
