Graven designs Lighthouse show

Graven Images is designing a touring exhibition on domestic Scottish architecture, organised by The Lighthouse, Scotland’s national centre for architecture and design.

The exhibition, called Anatomy of the House, opens at The Lighthouse in Glasgow on 1 March, running there until 26 May. After that, it will tour Edinburgh, Selkirk, Aberdeen and the Isle of Skye.

Graven’s brief was that the exhibition had to be ‘portable’, a spokeswoman says.

It will be ‘image-led’ featuring 3D models of contemporary case studies, such as housing estates, alongside documentaries by film-maker Sarah Tripp. The design will also incorporate wall panels and LCD screens.

The exhibition is set to explore general trends in domestic Scottish architecture in the past 5000 years, and examines five specific forms in detail. Architectural categories include croft, castle, settlement, urban and suburban.

It is the first of three touring exhibitions from The Lighthouse. The project is being led by Graven Images managing director Ross Hunter. The aim of the exhibition is to broaden access to architecture and design, he says.
