Architecture Fringe 2017 - New Typologies
Architecture Fringe 2017
01 - 23 July 2017
26 Civic Street, Glasgow G4 9RH
with Lee Ivett for the Architecture Fringe
New Typologies is a research and design project which imagines how our shared civic infrastructure will exist in the future, if at all. New work was commissioned and exhibited for the Architecture Fringe 2017 from McGinlay Bell, Stallan Brand, Adam Nathaniel Furman, Akiko Kobayashi & Jack Green, Fala Atelier, Mark Donaldson and Dress For The Weather.
The future that we invite you to imagine is from tomorrow to the year 2042, and no further. How will our town halls, schools, community centres, health facilities and public spaces function and what will they look like? Will they exist as we currently know them, or will they transform into as-yet unseen building type. Perhaps they will become redundant and are superceded by a new hybrid. Perhaps the clue to their future lies in the past. What will the look like? What form will they take? Who will use these new typologies, and how..?
The New Typologies were:
The Town Hall by Adam Nathaniel Furman
The Health Centre by McGinlay Bell
The Public Convenience by Akiko Kobayashi & Jack Green
The Arena by Fala Atelier
