The University of Strathclyde Architecture Building at 131 Rottenrow was officially opened 50 years ago, on the 16th of February 1967

The creative influence this building had on those who studied there is significant. In recognition of this, the Department of Architecture, in collaboration with the Glasgow Institute of Architects, has created a series of celebratory events across 2017.

  • 16.02.17    In Detail Drawing Competition. An open-call drawing competition.

  • 25.04.17 - 30.04.17  Maker's Street Live Project Workshops. A Live Project with @swg3warehouse and MacTaggart & Mickel. Book a place through: Eventbrite
    The Department, in collaboration with SWG3, is delighted to host Maker's Street, a three day Live Project which seeks to engage students of architecture and design in a series of 'learning by doing' events which will provide a better understanding of the role of architect designer in the construction industry. Across the three days, attendees will be offered the chance to explore a variety of construction techniques and processes through PARTICIPATION, DEMONSTRATION and OBSERVATION as they respond to a series of narrative-driven project briefs. Attendees will engage with Department staff, practising architects, other students of architecture and design, artists, contractors and trades people as they respond to both context and programme in a 'hands on' approach to architectural pedagogy.

  • 22.05.17 - 24.05.17  SWG3 Maker's Event. A series of #makersyard events´╗┐

  • Ongoing: 50/50 Exhibition. An exhibition in the Department of Architecture.
