7pm – 9pm
54 Bell Street, Glasgow
By popular demand GCHT brings you an evening looking at the changing styles of Glasgow’s public houses.
Alan Pert, founding director of NORD architecture, and Andy Campbell from design and architecture practice Dress for the Weather, look at the relationship between the history and evolution of the city and its effect on pub architecture and design.
The talk will focus on various cultural, political and urban shifts that have affected pub design and the associated architectural features. Taking a brief look at pubs in the early 1800s the talk will progress through Glasgow’s industrialisation and into the 20th century, towards modernism and beyond.
Dress for the Weather has recently adapted Glasgow’s best known pub crawl – The Subrawl – by creating an itinerary that focuses on art, architecture and cityscape while giving a nod to Glasgow’s pride in taking visitors out for a pint.
Alan Pert’s NORD practice has many numerous design awards. His work in Glasgow has included redesigns of The Hallion, Big Slope and Salty Dog.
It promises to be a highly illuminating evening and as ever GCHT will be entering into the spirit by providing appropriate refreshments. £3 donation requested.
