BEGINS the event blurb: “The Lighthouse – Scotland’s National Centre for Architecture, Design & The City – opened in 1999 and, over the following decades, represented an invaluable platform for the dissemination of architectural culture in Scotland.
“Its programme of exhibitions, events and public engagements served an educational purpose well beyond the profession, while simultaneously fostering the development of architectural discourse within it.
“With The Lighthouse now closed and barely a whisper about it, what does this mean for the ecology of architectural culture in Scotland?
“Our work here seeks to explore architectural culture in Scotland – its forms, models, and outputs – orientating it towards the medium future, to assess whether we need a revolution, evolution, or a combination of the two to help realise a plural, vibrant culture of architecture in this particular part of the world.
“(R)Evolution! Assembly – Cultures of Architecture is a half-day world cafe-style symposium where we’ll collectively share our memories of and aspirations for architectural culture here in Scotland.”
