described as the Golden Age of Scottish decorative arts and architecture The capital city of Edinburgh itself has been named the The Scottish Enlightenment in Stone and The Athens of the North The concept for the city plan was conceived in the 1750s as the old town had become crowded and outdated A competition was held to find a design for a new and modernized town and it was a young architect

House 1732 Their elder brother John who had worked for their father sponsored a Grand Tour through Italy for Robert and James The tour was instrumental in helping the pair gain knowledge of the motifs of the Roman Greek and Etruscan motifs which they blended with Palladian architecture to create their neo classical style during the rise of the romantic period of the late eighteenth century Upon their return from Italy Robert and James joined John in establishing a flourishing architectural and decorating business in Britain even importing Italian artificers or artisans to help carry out the commissions The brothers later published a book entitled The Works in Architecture 1773 1779 These volumes helped to promote and make their style fashionable and available throughout Europe The
