GUEST BLOG: Hoskins Architects


As this is the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design, for Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival 2016, Hoskins Architects will be welcoming visitors to their studio to show where and how they work.

Known for award winning projects such as the National Museum of Scotland, Mareel Cinema & Music Venue, and Culloden Battlefield Visitor Centre, Hoskins Architects use models as part of the design process to develop and explain their ideas.

The practice will be exhibiting their extensive model collection and visitors will have the chance to learn more about the practice and projects from members of the team. Visitors will also have the opportunity to make their own model building from Plasticine which will become part of a large model city that is constructed over the course of the day. Hoskins Architects want to use this process to explain concepts / themes about cities and the role that designers can play in improving the fabric of everyday life.


The model making activity is suitable for all ages, skills and abilities. To participate please drop-in anytime between 10am and 4pm. All materials will be provided. Children are required to be accompanied by an adult.
