Glasgow City Centre, Merchant City
The Bathhouse is a new visual arts centre in Glasgow's Merchant
City. It is the first venture of The Modern Institute
a commercial gallery, run by Toby Webster.
RMJM's proposals for the conversion of a 19th century
bathhouse create a modern gallery space that will allow TMI's
artists to showcase a collection of their works to both the public
and private collectors.
The principal gallery space has a glass external
door and passers-by will be able to see the exhibits. The
offices and workshop will provide modern facilities for the
Institute's employees and artists, including the 2009 Turner Prize
award winner Richard Wright.
Completed March 2010.
2008 - 2010
Between 2003 and 2014 Clyde Waterfront was a strategic
partnership comprising the Scottish Government, Scottish
Enterprise, Glasgow City, Renfrewshire and West Dunbartonshire
Councils. Its purpose was to promote the economic, social and
environmental regeneration of 13 miles of the River Clyde from
Glasgow city centre to Dumbarton.
