“Architecture Meets Art” will bring together some of the biggest names in the art and architecture world. Participants include; Zaha Hadid Architects; the team famed for the stunning Riverside Museum of Transport and Foster + Partners; the minds behind London’s iconic “Gherkin” and Glasgow’s The SSE Hydro and Armadillo. In addition to this, there will be contributions from Graven Images, the Mackintosh School of Architecture, Page/Park, Contagious Design, Gareth Hoskins Architects, 360 Architecture, N8 Design, Nicholas Szczepaniak Architects and artists David Simpson and Marion Gardyne.
The artwork will cross all mediums from sculpture, installation art and design to painting. The theme of the exhibition is to celebrate the cultural importance of Glasgow’s art and architecture. The original artworks will feature in an exclusive auction at the event’s Gala Dinner at the end of October, with funds raised going to ENABLE and The Glasgow School of Art, Mackintosh Building Fire Fund.
If you are an architect, a designer, an artist or a photographer, join #AMeetsA and create a unique snapshot of Glasgow to raise money for ENABLE Scotland, the country’s leading charity for people with learning disabilities, their families and carers.
Please help by using your perspectives of the City to create amazing pieces of art. These works will be exhibited and auctioned, and the money raised will contribute to the delivery of Inspire Me in Glasgow.
