Glasgow Institute of Architects has launched a triennial competition to commemorate Victorian architect Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson
The institute, as trustees for the Alexander Thomson Scholarship, is inviting entries into the competition from architects and architecture students under 30.
The brief is to create a drawing on the theme of ‘detail’, with the winner - decided by judges - set to receive a prize of £1,200.
A statement from the institute said: ‘Any non-digital medium is accepted (ink, pencil, watercolour, oil etc.) and any method of representation is accepted (abstract, on-location sketch, measured, technical etc.)’
The closing date for entries is 12pm on 15 February.
An exhibition of all entries will be held in central Glasgow during the 2016 Architecture Festival in March.
Thomson was a founding member of the institute, and on his death in 1875, a Travelling Scholarship was created for the furtherance of the study of ancient classic architecture.
The award was won in 1890 by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
