Collective Architecture





I’ve had a rash of enquiries from students recently about architectural lighting, particularly in the context of Glasgow. There is some innovative work being done by local firm Collective Architecture, known for their environmentally and socially sustainable transformation of communities. Their website has useful information about individual projects, including those related to lighting. Incidentally, one of the projects, to use weather forecasts to generate patterns of light in the stairwells of one of Glasgow's tower blocks, is covered in more detail in the Spring 2009 issue of Prospect magazine.
