Glasgow is awash with excellent exhibitions, as delegates to the British Council for offices annual conference discovered (many of them architects). Pride of place must to the Mies show at the Burrell Gallery, not least because the Burrell looks so good after all these years. But in hot pursuit are the Peter Murray-organised shows on architecture of democracy, at the Mclellan Gallery, and Patrick Geddes show, sponsored by the Burrell Company and not-for-profit Edinburgh development group edi. All will still be running during the rias convention at the end of this month. The poor bco delegates found themselves ensconced in the annexe to Norman Foster's Armadillo building for their event, a utilitarian box with little to commend it. Never again, muttered one developer.
