EXPENSIVE SHIT: ST. PETER’S SEMINARY

9 June

An archaeological apparition talks about a Modernist ruin, where the unravelling fabric reflects the ruin of society today and why that must be valued.

Joss Alexander Durnan

Talk
SUN 09 June 2019 / 2pm – 3pm
FREE

St Peter’s Seminary
Cardross G82 5EY

Not accessible

St Peter’s Seminary, arguably the magnum opus of its architects Andy MacMillian and Isi Metzstein, has found cult status as an abandoned building frequented by architects, vandals, photographers, and graffiti artists. It lies on the fringes of space and time, of reality, a dangerous hulk that determined visitors choose to enter at their own risk.

St Peter’s is often touted as an architectural masterpiece. But is that really what makes this place significant? The Seminary, recalcitrant in the face of its designers, its owners, its prospective saviours or destroyers seems determined to continue on its crumbling path 30 years after the lights were switched off for the last time.

Archaeologist Joss Durnan asks what fate this place demands and if, perhaps, its inevitable succumbing to ruination is the fate we deserve of it.

No one is invited.

#DesignPopUp 2019, Glasgow

12 – 14 June 2019

Venue: The Briggait (141 Bridgegate, Glasgow, G1 5HZ)

During the past twelve months, Scandinavian brands such as Swedese, Bla Station, Howe and Baux as well as innovative Scottish leather manufacturers, Muirhead, lighting specialist Fagerhult, pods experts The Meeting Pod and many other companies started to feature at #DesignPopUp.

During 2019 we can also reveal that the Glasgow edition will showcase an increasing number of exclusive Scandinavian brands as well as an array of new manufacturers joining the #DesignPopUp line-up.

The sixth #Glasgow edition of the temporary showroom for the #specification market is just a few weeks away now and shaping up to be a show with an amazing group of companies showcasing their latest collections.

Here is a snapshot of what #designers and #specifiers will be able to preview at the Briggait in June:

Guest presentations from HLM and Sheppard Robson Architects.

Award-winning bathroom product designers Crosswater will be showcasing the latest for their New Vanguard collection called ITALY.

SHELF, a fantastic addition to Schlüter-Systems’ range of solutions for tile and stone.
The shelves feature the distinctive FLORAL and CURVE designs of the Schlüter®-KERDI-LINE-STYLE/-DRAIN-STYLE grates released at Cersaie 2017, allowing for coordination across the drainage and storage elements of a room design.

Allgood will showcase their newest range of ironmongery – Mode.
The Mode range is an ergonomic collection of door furniture that is both dynamic in design and aesthetics. Made from grade-316 stainless steel, the Mode collection of ironmongery is guaranteed to stand the test of time.

Domus this year is focussing on the hospitality and Build-to-Rent markets.
Ahead of its official launch later this summer, we are privileged to have a preview of their latest collection, the ‘Domus Aura’ range, at The Briggait in June. A precision engineered oak flooring, each plank or parquet piece displays its own unique markings, grain, and texture, showing the inherent natural characteristics of wood.

SSEG Talk: Sunspaces and their Performance – Energy and Amenity

7 February 2018

Time: 6.30pm – 8.30pm
Venue: Principal Seminar Room 1 (ground floor), Reid Building, The Glasgow School of Art, 167 Renfrew Street, Glasgow, G3 6RQ
Cost: Non SSEG Members £10, Concession £5, SSEG Members Free

The environmental monitoring of sunspaces, not only the measurements within them relative to rooms behind, but how the sunspaces were designed in terms of their ventilation to the outside and through to the interior, have given us some insight with this new research. This includes how the users engage with manual controls at their disposal and what uses they make of the sunspaces.

The measurements and other information should give us some idea as to whether they save energy (as a solar enhanced, edge-insulating buffer, and/or a solar-ventilation-preheat source) and how they function as an amenity (e.g. relaxation, clothes drying).
