Architecture Fringe 2019 – Lighthouse Takeover

This year’s core programme exploring the In Real Life [IRL]provocation will see the Architecture Fringe production team take over The Lighthouse in central Glasgow for the whole of June. They will be packing the building with new commissioned work, key events and their always-a-sell-out opening party. Early highlights of the core programme include an exploration of queered space through the queer Glasgow club scene and an exhibition investigating the adaptive re-purposing of imagined existing buildings by some of the UK’s most exciting practices including Ann Nisbet Studio and You + Pea. The big lecture this year will be from architect Peter Barber.
