More than any other city in Scotland, Glasgow is renowned for its traditional tenements. Often considered to be class-neutral they provide accommodation ranging from the tiny, single room flat to an enormous elite apartment, helping to create integrated communities and physical homogeneity.
Matt McKenna from Dress for the Weather will talk about Issue One of their Typology Project, Tenement, which focuses on the robust nature of tenements and their variety, arrangement and use. Property Manager at The National Trust for Scotland’s Tenement House, Catherine Provan, will chart the history of tenements in the city and the life of Miss Agnes Toward, who lived in the House from 1911-65.
