The organisers of Scotland’s Architecture Fringe have invited proposals for the event

The fringe, which is in its third year, aims to support new work and emerging practice in Scotland. It will take place at venues across the country from 8 to 24 June this year with a theme of common/senses.

Interested parties can apply to take part by devising an exhibition, performance, discussion, screening, installation, lecture, piece of writing or music or one of many other forms of expression.

They have until midday on 9 April to apply, and more information is available on the event website

Architecture Fringe co-producer, and founder of Baxendale Studio, Lee Ivett, said: ‘This year’s theme looks critically and creatively at the common values that need to exist between those who conceive and deliver architecture and those who use it.

‘How people experience architecture is absolutely critical to our investigations for this year’s theme and we encourage contributors to reflect on sensory perception of architecture in both physical and non-physical environments and what architecture actually means at its most visceral level.’

The 2017 Architecture Fringe featured work from more than 260 contributors in 50 projects across 37 venues. Over its two years, the programme has included new artistic work, events, exhibitions, talks, environmental installations, community self-builds and a summer school.
