Gordon Chambers – Cloud Water Zen

Built 1903
82 Mitchell St
G1 3NA

Gordon Chambers, designed by the architect Frank Burnet, is an impressive eight storey red sandstone building in the heart of Glasgow city centre. The Cloud Water Zen Centre opened in 2017. It offers people living in Glasgow and the West of Scotland the opportunity to explore and practise Zen Buddhism. It was established to provide a quiet and peaceful space in the heart of the city, where people can enjoy some silence and calm amidst the hustle and bustle of the city. During Doors Open 2021, we offer the possibility of finding out more about the design and organisation of a Zen Buddhist temple, as well as learning about what it has to offer. Our resident Zen teacher will also offer a live webinar to provide more information.
