TYPOLOGY PROJECT: THE PUB
20TH SEPTEMBER 2014 – 10TH OCTOBER 2014
Dress for the Weather is currently researching the architecture and design of the public house. Drawings, graphics and text are brought together for this exhibition focusing on the historic and contemporary design features of the pub typology in Scotland and specifically Glasgow.
The evolution and design features of this typology in response to wider cultural, social and political contexts is important to the pubs own heritage as well as leading the way for many new architectural styles and languages to be introduced to the wider city. Dress for the Weather celebrate this heritage by charting an evolution of over 100 years of pub design using existing Glaswegian bars as case studies.
