‘Lines of Thought’ is an exhibition about architectural drawing and representation centring on the work of renowned architect Alexander Thomson.  Curated and organised by the Alexander Thomson Society it celebrates the bicentenary of Thomson’s birth through a selection of original drawings and those of others who have later recorded or interpreted his work in a range of media including pen and ink measured studies, detailed digital renderings, precision models, journals, sketches, film and the more abstract work of artists.

The intention is to reveal the industrious, creative as well as the more complex side of the architect, his prolific imagination and uniquely creative architectural contribution to the architecture of the city of Glasgow and the Clyde estuary.
