Installations sought for Alexander Thomson's Holmwood House

[Submissions must be received by 30 July] The Glasgow Institute of Architects (GIA) has launched a contest to design installations for the parlour of Holmwood House

Open to all UK students and professionals under 30 years old, the project re-launches the institute’s ‘triennial competition’ and is being run as part of the Alexander Thomson Scholarship.

Entrants are invited to compose their own brief to ‘breathe new life’ into the space. Briefs should take account of the room’s size constraints.

The winner will take home a £1,200 prize while shortlisted entries are set to be exhibited in Holmwood House.

Established following Thomson’s death in 1875, the triennial competition’s most famous winner was Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1890.
