Mackintosh Queen’s Cross: Thursday 20 June at 6pm
‘A Place for the Work and the Human Being’ runs throughout 2019 and takes place in a range of venues, new and old, around Glasgow. The series explores the needs, expectations and possibilities of the space for art today and speakers include artists, architects, curators and others.
For the fifth event in the series, and as part of Architecture Fringe 2019, we are delighted to present leading architect Jamie Fobert.
Jamie Fobert is a London-based architect and designer, recently announced as winner of the BD Architect of the Year Gold Award 2019. Since establishing Jamie Fobert Architects in 1996, he has consistently produced innovative and inspiring architecture in projects ranging from individual houses to high quality retail and significant public buildings for the arts. During this time, the practice has won a number of major public commissions for cultural organisations including the new Tate St Ives, which opened to great public acclaim in October 2017, extensions to Kettle’s Yard Gallery and Charleston House, both of which opened to the public last year and most recently, The National Portrait Gallery.
Mackintosh Queens Cross is one of Glasgow’s hidden architectural gems. Built in 1898, it is the only church designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
Refreshments will be served after the event.
Tickets can be purchased here.
