'A Place for the Work and the Human Being'

5. Jamie Fobert

Mackintosh Queens Cross, 870 Garscube Road, Glasgow G20 7EL

20 June 2019

'A Place for the Work and the Human Being' runs throughout 2019 and takes place in a range of venues, new and old, around Glasgow. The series explores the needs, expectations and possibilities of the space for art today and speakers include artists, architects, curators and others.

Jamie Fobert is a London-based architect and designer, recently announced as winner of the BD Architect of the Year Gold Award 2019. Since establishing Jamie Fobert Architects in 1996, he has consistently produced innovative and inspiring architecture in projects ranging from individual houses to high quality retail and significant public buildings for the arts. During this time, the practice has won a number of major public commissions for cultural organisations including the new Tate St Ives, which opened to great public acclaim in October 2017, extensions to Kettle’s Yard Gallery and Charleston House, both of which opened to the public last year and most recently, The National Portrait Gallery.

Mackintosh Queens Cross is one of Glasgow's hidden architectural gems. Built in 1898, it is the only church designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

This event was part of Architecture Fringe 2019 and West End Festival.
