To accompany the ‘Tenement: An Architectural History’ Exhibition at GCHT, Architect John Joseph Burns will be presenting his research into the history & development of the Glasgow Tenement as an architectural typology which defines the city. The research will span from the formations of city through to contemporary examples, exploring the links between architectural design and social change in Glasgow’s history.
The talk will explore key tenement types throughout time, analysing their architectural design, qualities & place within the wider urban development of the city. This original research will present a set of tenement types which represent the changing architecture of this everyday typology through engaging architectural drawings alongside historic photographs and maps.
Tenement: An Architectural History is open from 25th October | Exhibition Launch October 24th, 6-8pm
