The New Glasgow Society is a civic society that has been promoting and raising interest about Glasgow’ built environment since 1965. Run by volunteers, it is self-funded and unaffiliated to any political party.
The society organises exhibitions, campaigns, talks and tours aiming to encourage high standards of architecture and town planning in the Glasgow region, and to stimulate conversation in preserving, developing and improving features of general public amenity or historic interest.
The Glasgow Institute of Architects is the largest chapter in the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (RIAS) and has more than 1,600 members located from the Scottish Borders to the islands of Argyll.
Its main focus is to engage with its members to provide a supporting role and the promotion of architecture in the chapter area.
