The Lighthouse - Natural Factory Exhibition

This exhibition showcases the past, current and future uses of indigenous Scottish timber – from tree to paper - but in particular the potential to use timber as a building material. It is the first in a series exhibitions investigating sustainable construction products, which will ultimately form the core of the Scottish Government funded Sustainable Materials Library. The exhibition and the resultant Library will operate on a number of levels, and should appeal to young people, the public and professionals alike – whether as a resource for school and student projects, for those building or upgrading their homes or for designers working on large scale architectural projects.

The Lighthouse (11 Mitchell Lane, G1 3NU) exhibitions are free to the public and subject to opening times listed on the website. For enquiries phone: The Lighthouse Reception: 0141 276 5365
