Sir Patrick Geddes (1854 - 1932) was a Scottish biologist, sociologist, educator, and is often considered a father of modern town and regional planning. He developed the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, advanced ideas for the renovation of old housing and the planning and building of new homes, and advocated using the Camera Obscura as a teaching medium.
