Throughout 2019 The Common Guild presents an ambitious series of talks that generates discussion around the needs, expectations and possibilities of the space for art today. The talks take place in a range of venues, new and old, and the series includes artists, architects, curators and others.
Jamie Fobert is a London-based architect and designer. Since establishing Jamie Fobert Architects in 1996, he has consistently produced innovative and inspiring architecture in projects ranging from individual houses to significant public buildings for the arts. During this time, the practice has won a number of major public commissions for cultural organisations including the new Tate St Ives, extensions to Kettle's Yard Gallery and Charleston House, and most recently, The National Portrait Gallery. The Mackintosh Church in Queen's Cross is one of Glasgow's hidden architectural gems. Built in 1898, it is the only church designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
