Last chance to see ‘Drawn to the Future’

Anna Skovgaard Pedersen

Into architecture, technology and sci-fi? Think Augmented Reality is more interesting than an art gallery on a Saturday? Well, then the current exhibition at The Building Centre may just be something for you. The exhibition ends 3rd October though, so you need to be quick!

Drawn To The Future explores the innovative technologies that are changing the way we visualise the future and communicate new ideas. This is demonstrated through a wonderfully varied exhibition of work from digital artists, games designers, data visualisation teams, programmers, architects, engineers, academics and model-makers – all showing a different approach to how buildings, urban spaces and landscapes can be designed and presented using the new technology available.                                                                                                                                                               2015-09-09 18.50.37

You don’t have to be an architect, engineer or programmer to enjoy Drawn To The Future. The exhibition is designed to appeal to the wider public and lets you interact with many of the installations. For example, you can take a virtual reality rollercoaster ride around a fantasy city, ‘see through’ the walls at The Building Centre using an app and explore virtual environments such as the Mackintosh Library at Glasgow School of Art.

Drawn to the Future runs until 3rd October. Monday-Friday 9am-6pm, Saturday 10am-5pm at The Building Centre. It’s free, no booking required.                                                                                                                                                                                                    2015-09-09 18.51.05
