Wednesday 9th May 2018 | 6 – 8pm | Sloans Ballroom, 108 Argyle Street, Glasgow, G2 8BG
Andrew McConnell of Glasgow Building Preservation Trust will discuss John Gilbert’s life and career with him, from growing up in Belfast to his early career as an activist, restorer of buildings and an architect and setting up his own practice in Glasgow.
They will discuss the influences in John’s life that have shaped his work and led him to focus his career on conservation and social housing. John will discuss the projects he has completed across Scotland, both with Assist Architects and as John Gilbert Architects, and also in support of community action groups.
This event will provide a fascinating insight into John both as a person and as an architect, and will be beautifully illustrated by photographs, drawings and objects from his personal collection.
