Following last year's debut success, this October New Glasgow Society presents 'Imagine Glasgow 2016' - bringing students from both Strathclyde University and Mackintosh School of Architecture together to tackle contemporary urban issues in the city of Glasgow, with outstanding architecture and masterplanning projects.
Will the visions of these young architects offer a glimpse of the Glasgow of the future?
Artist and producer Annie Crabtree will be screening a film (no sound) in the window of NGS on Friday 14th Oct and Saturday 15th Oct from 6pm - midnight, to be viewed from the street. An open call is being made for workshop participants to come view the projection on the Friday (sign up here), and partake in a workshop on the Saturday to discuss the projection. On Sunday 16th Oct there will be an open drop in session during the day for anyone who is interested to pop in and find out more about the research.
ARTchitecture is an exhibition of collages that celebrates Glasgow's building heritage and merges the elements of art with architecture, and will run at NGS from 31st October - 13 November, 10am-4pm. A preview will take place at 18:30 on Tues Nov 1st.
We have submitted the objection below to Glasgow City Council, and would urge others to do the same. Due to rights issues, we're unwilling to reproduce the renderings and images depicting the proposal here, but we would suggest you view them here ('View 1', 'View 2', etc.) - plans are also available on that page. Please consider this proposal very carefully. The deadline for submissions has now passed, and we await developments with interest.
This is a proposal that compromises the character of Sauchiehall Street, regardless of its impact on the Art School, and the present 02 ABC building - both structures of obvious historical and aesthetic importance. We deserve better.
MMIM: Plus-One is a three day residency with ten artists at New Glasgow Society. The residency is organised by MMIM (Katie Reid and Emma Reid). Their projects, prompted by open-source methodologies, bring together artists to share and develop ideas through research, making, and dialogue. MMIM have a prevailing interest in working site-responsively, so the site plays a formative role for each project.
We're trying to help an author who's working a substantial research project on buildings, schemes and built features that were proposed, but never completed, within Glasgow.

'The Clyde made Glasgow, and Glasgow made the Clyde', runs the old saying. It gave Glasgow life, connected it to the world, enabled it to become the trading powerhouse it once was, and has provided inspiration for centuries of writers and artists. So how is being treated in the city's largely post-industrial phase? Who really 'owns' the Clyde? What should we ask of it? What are the priorities for its future?
