exhibitions & publications

The practice has had a long history of exhibiting work and participating in various collaborative projects between architects and artists. As an active member of the Royal Scottish Academy, Fergus Purdie has been involved in organising and curating exhibitions and we regularly exhibit at the RSA.

Publications also form a large part of the practice’s research, developing exhibition material and documenting both practice and collaborative work.
