Architecture, Design

When we studied at Glasgow School of Art there was a healthy exchange between the departments, the language of aspiration was common to all the arts. That was a very productive and stimulating environment which we took into architectural practice, working across the arts throughout our careers: with George Wyllie on his Crystal Ship project; on furniture, stage production and curating exhibitions in Milan; on modern and historic buildings (large and small); furniture and minutely detailed interiors in the U.K and abroad. 

Duncan Scott has practised mainly in Glasgow, on a wide range of projects, most notably the Luma Building, Partick Transport Interchange and Scottish Ballet.  He has close working relationships with Artists involved in regenerative Art Works and has been a Design Tutor at the University of Strathclyde Department of Architecture for many years.

We began Unlimited Studios to develop cross-sector interaction, 'us architects'  and 'iota' are a natural extension of that.

'iota' aims are two-fold and bi-directional: to bring art, artists & the creative industries into view and to encourage people to engage with creativity. Everyone benefits. Many people could benefit from access to the arts, but feel remote from it. We devise participatory events and bring an array of creative work directly to the public, as conveniently as any corner-shop brings you milk. There are numerous opportunities for recent graduates and established artists, but few for those in-between. We offer work across genres and generations.

We hold a range of work by 'iota artists' - original paintings, sculptures, prints or limited editions, products, music & literature too. We can discuss what you like and advise according to your budget. We can source pieces or commission work, for private or commercial needs.

For any aspect of Unlimited Studios: us architects, iota or CityLoft, please call us on +44 (0)141 338 6052 or fill in this form & we will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you.
