Something a little different on the blog today from my trip to Glasgow, Scotland last year. As many interior design lovers would attest, appreciating architecture is merely an extension of this love and if you’re anything like me I’m often that person snapping away at the architecture that surrounds me any where we go.

I loved the city of Glasgow and in particular the art galleries and exhibitions. So today, a simple and visual insight to my trip starting with the historical and beautiful Gallery of Modern Art right in the heart of Glasgow city.

‘Places of Worship’  was a work on display at GOMA by Nathan Coley, overwhelming you as you entered the room at the shear work and intricacy. Coley created 286 spiritual and religious buildings, a reflection of those throughout Scotland, all made by hand from cardboard, taking several years to complete. The work explored how buildings and architecture are two separate things – buildings are purely functional, while architecture is related to feelings and meanings such as sacrifice, truth, power, beauty, life or memory. For him the cardboard buildings unite as one group to form a community.
