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’.
GIA CPD Event 7 – Asbestos awareness
22 March 2017, 6:00 pm
Roger Willery of ACS will provide asbestos awareness training.
This presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
Complimentary tea and coffee will be available.

(Re)Imagining Glasgow – Architecture Event by GIA
Premiere screening of (Re)Imagining Glasgow, on Sunday 20th March at 3:15pm.
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.
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.
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
Director, Gehl Architects + former Edinburgh City Design Advisor
– Johnny Rodger
Writer, Critic, + Professor at The Glasgow School of Art
Tickets via the GFT website: £6 (Concession £5)
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.
