Event description

Description

Chez Etym.: site (n.) will explore the phenomena of place and memory and their intersection with contemporary urban fabric. Using Glasgow’s Southside as a thematic catalyst, a panel will discuss this subject with consideration for the local geography and its heritage, culture, and identity. In three parts, the discussion will shift focus between three conversational anchors: The Burrell Collection and its position in Glasgow's architectural psyche; Tradeston-Laurieston and the opportunities and challenges presented by the areas' (post-)industrial nature; and Govanhill as an exemplar of the contemporary relationships between the tenement archetype, cultural diversity and integration.


Alongside the discussion will be an exhibition presenting the work from the forthcoming publicaiton Chez Etym. Strengthening themes touched on in the conversation and exploring ideas further afield, the exhibition will present work from a diverse set of architects, designers, artists, writers and poets. The exhibtion will be open and free to attend all day from 10am, and from 6:30pm during the pre-discussion drinks.



Speakers include:
- Lee Ivett, Director of Baxendale;
- Paul Stallan, Design Director of Stallan-Brand;
- Ingrid Deakin, Co-Founder of Missing in Architecture;
- Fatima Uygun, Trust Manager of the Govanhill Baths; and,
- Niall Murphy, Deputy Director of the Glasgow City Heritage Trust.


Drinks and exhibition viewing: 6:30 pm

Panel Discussion: 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
