AmeetsA (Architecture meets Art) is a charity event which raises funds for Inspire Me, part of Enable Scotland. Architects and artists are invited to submit artwork that is auctioned for the charity at a gala event, which this year is taking place at The Corinthian in Glasgow city centre, on 10th September 2015.
The artist theme for this year’s edition was “Scotland Reinvented.”
Following the brief, I created a fantasy building using 14 different architectural locations with 21 features taken from these selected buildings around Glasgow.
The collage focusses on the multicultural diversity of the cities architecture.
The buildings include Glasgow City Chambers, Glasgow Central Mosque, Glasgow Cathedral, St Andrews Cathedral, Garnethill Synagogue, Central Gurdwara and the former Templetons Carpet Mill at Glasgow Green. There are also windows from the Glasgow tenements represented, which were photographed in Hillhead and Dowanhill.
A print of the collage, mounted and framed, from a limited edition of 200, will be auctioned at the gala dinner.
