Blog / Review Gallery - Open Call 2019

Review Gallery - Open Call 2019 29 Oct 2018

The Lighthouse: Scotland’s Centre for Architecture and Design has maintained a programme of exhibitions and events that aim to show all aspects of design and question their social, economic, environmental and/or cultural impact.

The Review Gallery has been a space within The Lighthouse reserved for emerging architects, designers, or businesses with a focus on new projects or endeavours. This annual call-out is an opportunity to show recent work or create new work for the space. Located on our first floor overlooking reception with a double-height wall the space benefits from being exposed to all visitors that come into the building.

Each successful application will receive a £600 stipend to help cover materials, catering for any event and other costs. They will also receive in-kind support from The Lighthouse for install/de-install and marketing.

This year we are looking for a range of designers, architects and entrepreneurs to apply. Priority will be given to those that have really considered the unusual space of the Review Gallery, especially its double-height wall and the impact the exhibition could have on their work, project, career or practice.

A template application can be found below with a breakdown of criteria that will be looked at:


Brief overview of your practice or project and how it connects to your proposed exhibition.


What you plan to do in the space and the impact you hope to make with visitors and any further specific pieces or models you hope to show. - LAYOUT Discuss how you would use the space


The impact this exhibition could have on any future plans


A rough breakdown of projected costs and any risks involved with the project. Lighthouse can provide a letter of support for any additional funding or partners. 


Please attach anything else you find relevant.

These criteria are flexible. Applications that emphasise design or architecture with a clear and ambitious approach to the space will be prioritised. Please address any queries to Exhibitions - Completed applications should be emailed by 21 January 2019 at 17:00pm.

Please find the application template here.
