The Glasgow Institute of Architects, in collaboration with Glasgow Life, Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival and Mackintosh at the Willow, are inviting entries for an exciting live-build competition during the Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival weekend to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Taking place from Friday 14th to Sunday 16th of September, the competition will see the Billiard Room at ‘Mackintosh at the Willow’ on Sauchiehall Street inhabited and transformed by an installation built entirely from cardboard, which will enhance the Mackintosh-designed space.
Entrants are asked to propose an installation designed from cardboard, which will inhabit and enhance the architectural quality of the Mackintosh-designed interior and compliment the space. The winning entry will be taken forward and developed for construction during the Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival and will form part of the official Mackintosh 150 programme of celebrations celebrating the architects work.
The competition is free to enter and is open to all UK-based architects, designers, artists, sculptors and furniture-makers, as well as students of these respective trades and professions under the age of 30. An award of £1000 will be awarded to the winner, with £250 and £100 awarded to the second and third placed entrants.
