Architecture Fringe Scotland
Architecture Fringe is a grassroots organisation based in Scotland that explores architecture and design in social, political and cultural contexts. The name relates to the original event known as the Fringe, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe which began in 1947, concurrently with the Edinburgh International Festival an arts and culture know known worldwide.
The first Architecture Fringe opened in 2016, whilst the 2017 programme hosted work from around 260 contributors over 50 projects in 37 venues. The 2018 and 2019 programmes saw the range and geographical spread of events grow even further, to over 100 events. Over the previous four iterations, the programme has included new artistic work, events, exhibitions, talks, environmental installations, community self-builds and a summer school.
In 2019 Architecture Fringe, the event moved to a biennial model, running every other year with a range of other activities in-between.The event is run by a production team of dedicated volunteers and a wider network of associates, contributors, open programme producers and audiences.
