RIAS Festival of Architecture 2017
Sep 2017


The month of September will see the whole of Scotland celebrating Scottish Architecture, its legacy and in particular, this year’s special theme, our homes, reports the RIAS.

Many different types of events will engage a wide audience throughout Scotland, from school groups to professionals, from the Capital to the islands. Some will be founded on participation and hands-on experience, some purely entertainment, others more educational and even challenging. Accessible, appealing and within reach of everyone, this Festival will ensure that people across Scotland become more confident about engaging with architecture and all aspects of the design of our public spaces.

If you have an idea how to support architecture and make it more accessible for the whole of Scotland, we want to hear from you! All events with an architectural theme will be considered, they can be of any scale and any format.

RIAS is providing the opportunity for events organisers to access support finance to enhance existing or create new activity, reflecting the themes and supporting the aims of the Festival. Applications must be made on the application form and submitted by email to the RIAS Festival of Architecture by the 30th June 2017.

Scottish Heritage Angel Awards 2017 – Call for Nominations

Entry Deadline: 11 Aug 2017

Nominations have opened for the third Scottish Heritage Angels Awards in a bid to find those groups and individuals – or ‘Angels’ – who have played a special part in caring for, recording and celebrating the nation’s historic environment.

This year, a brand new set of categories have been introduced for the Scottish Heritage Angel Awards. They are:

* Best Rescue of a Historic Building
* Best Contribution to a Heritage Project by Young People
* Best Craftsperson or Apprentice on a Heritage Rescue or Repair Project
* Best Rescue, Recording or Interpretation of a Historic Place

Launched in 2014 and funded by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation (ALWF), and run by the Scottish Civic Trust in partnership with Historic Environment Scotland, Archaeology Scotland and the Scottish Government, the scheme seeks to celebrate both groups and individuals who have gone above and beyond in their efforts to promote, protect and, in many cases, rescue Scotland’s heritage.

Nominations will close on Friday 11th August. For full details see Scottish Heritage Angel Awards 2017

Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson Bi-Centenary Travelling Scholarship 2017

Entry Deadline: 1 Aug 2017

The Alexander Thomson Society and the Glasgow Institute of Architects are inviting architects and students below the age of thirty to submit a persuasive essay on the theme of legacy.


Architecture has the unique opportunity to have an active dialogue through time. Reacting to what has come before, responding to the present and place-making to facilitate life in the future. As such, the discipline is intimately concerned with the idea of ‘legacy.’ Whether by a movement, a culture, a person, or a mark on a page, we are informed by that which precedes us. We tap in to an eternity of resources which, in turn, inform what we leave our successors.
What will speak for you long after you are gone?

Deadline 1 August 2017.

A sum of £1000 will be awarded to a single winning entrant at the discretion of the judges. The winner will also have their entry published and will be invited to speak about their submission at the GIA’s ‘paper_CUT’ event in September 2017.

GIA CPD Event 6 – Building Tight – Ventilating Right? Studies of ventilation in new homes
22 February 2017, 6:00 pm

Changes in buildings standards and construction techniques have led to increasing ‘tighter’ buildings, with much lower levels of air infiltration. This has been an important step toward making more energy efficient and comfortable buildings. However, it also means that the vast majority of ventilation provision in homes now has to be ‘designed’.

(Re)Imagining Glasgow – Architecture Event by GIA

Premiere screening of (Re)Imagining Glasgow, on Sunday 20th March at 3:15pm.

(Re)Imagining Glasgow

For Scotland’s Festival of Architecture 2016, the Glasgow Institute of Architects have commissioned filmmaker Chris Leslie to create a new short film. (Re)Imagining Glasgow looks at Glasgow’s regeneration over the past forty years and the pledges made by the Corporation of the City of Glasgow.

(Re)Imagining Glasgow

The film playfully reworks Oscar Marzaroli’s 1970 film Glasgow 1980 and uses previously unseen footage shot by Marzaroli for an uncompleted follow-up film, Glasgow’s Progress, alongside new footage of Glasgow today. It shows how Glasgow has been torn down, reimagined and transformed, and questions the city’s seemingly never ending urban renewal.
The premiere screening of (Re)Imagining Glasgow will be held during the Glasgow Short Film Festival at the GFT Cinema, the screening will be followed by a panel discussion, chaired by the Glasgow Institute of Architects.

(Re)Imagining Glasgow

The guest panel:

– Chris Leslie
BAFTA Scotland (New Talent) Award Winner, Documentary Filmmaker, Photographer + Visual Artist
– Emily Munro
Learning + Outreach officer at the National Library for Scotland’s Moving Image Archive
– Karen Pickering
Director, PagePark Architects
– Riccardo Marini

NVA’s Island Drift Exhibition
14 November 2015 – 24 January 2016
Street Level Photoworks, Trongate103, Glasgow, G1 5HD

Island Drift is an immersive photographic installation, created in partnership with Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park. During an eight month programme of creative interventions at Loch Lomond, designer James Johnson, photographer Alan McAteer and NVA’s creative director Angus Farquhar worked with park rangers to manipulate moving and static light sources on land and water, creating a powerful series of images articulating the Highland boundary fault line.
This gallery-based exhibition is a significant departure for NVA. For the first time performing in and with the landscape is not the main intention. Instead the manipulation of light and movement in real time, over large physical spaces, existed purely to release the untouched photographic artwork.
