RGU lecturers exhibit architecture work during NEOS | September 2013 | Robert Gordon University News
September 13, 2013
Two lecturers at Robert Gordon University (RGU) are highlighting the artistic beauty intrinsic in architecture design work by taking part in one of the country’s largest art events.
David Vila Domini and Conrad Wiedermann, who teach at the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture and Built Environment, are holding an exhibition of their design work as part of the 10th anniversary of the North East Open Studios (NEOS) event.
NEOS is Scotland’s largest open studios event – a not-for-profit collective of artists, makers and galleries in the north east of Scotland who open their doors to the public yearly – which started its three week run on September 7.
A number of innovative designs created by David and Conrad will be on display as part of the event, opening on Saturday (Sept 14) and running until Sunday, September 22, at NEOS venue 98 in Bieldside, Aberdeen.
The work is the result of research the duo have carried out into new house forms in the north-east, including items displayed at the Royal Scottish Academy summer exhibition earlier this year, through their practice EIGHTYSEVEN Architecture.
David said: “We are delighted to be taking part as the only ever architects in NEOS for the second year running – this time they have created an architecture category especially for us, which is fantastic.
“Although architecture design may not typically be classed as an art form, there is a huge amount of aesthetic value in it and I think our carefully crafted work suits an art exhibition well.”
The exhibition can be found at the Music Studio, 87 North Deeside Road, Bieldside, Aberdeen between September 13 and 21.
