Architecture Fringe

ArchiFringe Main Banner

8th - 10th July 2016 The Architecture Fringe is a contributor-led series of events and projects across all artistic fields which seeks to activate, reveal and promote creative responses to architecture which make a difference to people's lives. A new independent fringe for architecture in 2016 and beyond… 

Inspired by the Year of Innovation, Architecture & Design a new fringe festival for architecture has been initiated by a group of architects, photographers, engineers, visual artists, curators and musicians.  Set to have its first run in July 2016 the Architecture Fringe is an independent, contributor-led series of events and projects across the arts which will explore architecture and how it makes a difference to our lives.

Complementing the Festival of Architecture 2016, the Architecture Fringe will host a number of events, exhibitions, talks and a community self-build with activity taking place in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Beith in North Ayrshire and Farr south of Inverness.  Inspired by the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the Architecture Fringe has no formal application process and is a completely open platform for creative work responding to the built environment.  The intention is to establish the Architecture Fringe as an annual event across Scotland.
