Opening Doors, Welcoming Communities with Page\Park Architects

Booking Necessary: Yes

Following a year of lockdown and yearning for the sociability of our cultural spaces, we have never wanted or needed community more. Our short film explores various communities we have had the pleasure of engaging through our architecture, taking you on a journey from Glasgow to Leeds.

The short film covers completed Page\Park projects which were a catalyst for, or contributor to, change, building on strong community ties. Starting in Glasgow, we discuss how past projects like the Kelvingrove Bandstand and the Theatre Royal formed our thinking, focused on creating democratic access for everyone, with a common ambition to create inclusive environments that serve their respective communities.

We explore how the work in Glasgow opened doors for us to tackle the same theme of access for all, south of the border, taking a closer look at how past and present projects in England are strengthening their communities.

Organisation Information:

Page\Park is an award-winning architectural practice undertaking work across the UK from our studio offices in Glasgow and Leeds. Founded in 1981, Page\Park Architects has grown from a small Glasgow-based partnership to a busy employee owned practice of thirty-five staff with offices in Glasgow and Leeds. We have an unwavering practice ethos: of being a creative community, united by a common purpose to design creatively, with integrity, and to make a difference.
