GIA Design Competition Kilcreggan

GIA at KilcregganI was invited to be a judge on the Kilcreggan Design competition, set for the village of Kilcreggan on the Rosneath Peninsula by the Glasgow Institute of Architects (GIA).

They explored lots of ideas together, which were developed into the eventual submissions. These ranged from object fetishism to avant garde landscape to sensitive urban design and village mending.
