We are heading to the Geddes Quadrangle, named for Patrick Geddes, the Chair of Botany from 1888 to 1919. Geddes is a difficult to pin down. He is often described as the 'father of modern town planning'; his ideas on city design influenced places such as Bombay and Tel Aviv. But he was also a zoologist, a sociologist, a geographer and social reformer. He helped revitalise Edinburgh's Old Town when it had become a slum.
