Designed by award-winning architects NORD, South Block provides 96 studios for Glasgow’s creative community including:
South Block has a flexible exhibition and projects space on the ground floor of the building. In programming this space, Wasps has a focus on works with design-based processes.
The space is substantial and gets lots of natural light from a large full length window which looks out onto Osborne Street. This space lends itself for exhibitions, evening events, gatherings and talks. There is also a meeting space to the rear of the building up a small set of stairs which can be used for small screenings, meetings and workshops.
Bookings and notes of interest for the space are taken by the reception team at South Block. If you are interested in using this space for your creative event or exhibition, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. See full details of the space by clicking the link below.
