Lights out at The Lighthouse

We were saddened to hear of the troubles facing the Lighthouse in Glasgow. It has been a nodal point in Glasgow’s architecture scene and its presence will be missed. We were only beginning to get involved in SUST and are disappointed that this may be discontinued. We had early plans for our first birthday celebration and the Lighthouse was one of our favoured venues for this event. The seminar series will be missed, as will the exhibitions, and we sincerely hope that some form of resolution can be arrived at to protect the key activities of the building. As one commentator said, “I…hope that the … attention deemed worthy of Diageo … will be focused on the Lighthouse, to ensure that Scotland does not lose this vital resource.”

It is, all in all, a sad and unfortunate symptom of the current climate.
