‘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.

For our sixth talk in the series, we are delighted to present the Glasgow-based architect, Jude Barber.

Jude Barber is a director at Collective Architecture. The 48-strong, 100% employee-owned and controlled studio is founded on principles of creative freedom, equity and sustainability. In 2018 Collective Architecture was named 2018 AJ Architect of the Year. Together, the team has delivered several key civic and cultural projects around the UK including Glasgow Women’s Library in Bridgeton, Paisley Secret Collection, Barmulloch Residents’ Centre and the City Observatory on Calton Hill. In parallel with her studio practice, Jude has undertaken several close collaborations including the award-winning Empire Café with writer Louise Welsh during the 2014 Commonwealth Games. She was named ‘Creative Industry Leader of the Year’ at the 2018 Scotland Women’s Awards.

Langside Halls were designed by John Gibson in 1847. It was originally the National Bank of Scotland in Queen Street, but the buidling was dismantled and moved brick by brick to its present location in 1902.

Refreshments will be served after the event.

This event is part of Glasgow Open Doors Days Festival.

Langside Halls is a fully accessible venue, and this talk will be BSL interpreted.
