Classic glazing art by famous Scot Sir Patrick Geddes uncovered during renovation to yield powerful hotel PR

A PREVIOUSLY unknown and rare stained glass panel which celebrates one of Scotland’s most famous sons has been uncovered on the site of Edinburgh’s newest boutique hotel.

The collection of three windows had been obscured for decades and only came to light during renovation work on the Fraser Suites hotel in St Giles Street.

The central window of the trio bears the inscription Vivendo Discimvs (Latin for ‘by living we learn’) which is the motto used by Sir Patrick Geddes, who was celebrated across the world for his innovative thinking in the fields of urban planning and education.

Often described as the pioneer of modern town planning, Geddes created the first residential accommodation for University students in Scotland. He believed it was an essential part of education for students to live together. He was also instrumental in the design of Edinburgh Zoo and created more natural environments for the animals, separating them from the public by moats rather than the usual cages typical of Victorian menageries.
