Imagine a Scotland which no longer sits on the periphery of Europe but instead at the gateway to a new northern region; a gateway to the Arctic and the world beyond it. Taking inspiration from their current exhibition “Prospect North” at the prestigious Venice Biennale, Graham’s talk re-imagines our traditional perceptions of Scotland and looks to the north, and the Nordics, for its future.
Graham Hogg is a director at Lateral North, an architecture, research and design collective based in Glasgow, Scotland. He studied architecture at Roma Tre University and University of Strathclyde, with the latter being where himself and Tom Smith began Lateral North. Working on community projects through to national strategies, the collective focuses on investigating Scotland’s new place and identity within an economically emerging northern region; exploring the relationship between people, culture, places, industries and economies.
