Gibson Street Gala

Culture, General, Glasgow, Meeting people, Photos, Summer

I’m awfully behind when it comes to publishing the material I’ve gathered the last weeks. So you can expect a lot from now on! Gibson Street Gala was two weekends ago. It’s a street that is just around the corner from our apartment so we went there to see what they offered.

It wasn’t only we that were there. So much people and we continuously met people we knew.

There was stalls for food, stuff and art. Live music on a scene at the end of the street and lots of activities.

We were at this courtyard that was fantastic in the sun, never been there before. Inside the yellow part is our favourite café Artisan Roast. Who could’ve known that this was just on the other side of the wall.

IKEA seemed to sponsor the event so we tried their outdoor chairs. Pretty good.

When we got tired of people and screaming kids we walked to Kelvingrove Park. Sat down for awhile and enjoyed the view.

Final Presentation Done!

Architecture, General, Glasgow, Meeting people, Photos, Strathclyde University

Tuesday was the day that slowly ominously approached, a day I didn’t want to come and a day I was longing for to pass. Examination day. All the work I’ve done since September was presented in a kind of anticlimax way. I still have a hard time realising that it is actually over. The presentation went fine, got comments on how professional it was done. Very much appreciated.

Just putting up the exhibition was hard work, here’s our corner of it.

A happy Grant.

A wooden structure that was built to hang our analysis and strategy work that we’d done last autumn. A very wobbly construction.

Dressed up for the occasion, and very proud of the work Agnes and I have done. The things on the boards are but a part of it, the rest is in the booklet.

Here’s the review panel.

It was a long day, Agnes and I had our presentation first in the morning and the last ones ended at half past six.

Here’s a part of the gang, tired and ready to go for some drinks to celebrate.

The Martini Party

Festive, General, Glasgow, Meeting people, Photos

Laura invited us to a Martini Party at her place where the dress code was to dress up. As I don’t have any fancy dresses here, I dressed up in my New Years suit. I was feeling fab. The night included Martinis, Glasgow’s best Mojitos, a camera and wigs. Here’s the result!

Yes, that’s me photo bombing, but these ladies were to fine not to show.
