New Northern Fontiers looks at the work of Lateral North a research and design collective based in Glasgow, Scotland.
Lateral North looks to investigate Scotland’s new place and identity within an economically emerging northern region; exploring the relationship between people, culture, places, industries and economies.
An Atlas of Productivity
What will future Scotland look like and what role will we play within the emerging Nordic and Arctic regions? “An Atlas On Productivity” Is the first dedicated atlas of Scotland since the 19th century and perhaps the first ‘atlas of productivity’ anywhere in the world.
The atlas maps not just Scotland’s landscape and towns and cities but seeks to maps as many of the aspects of national productivity as possible. Over 35 maps we see everything from Scotland’s land ownership and its wind speeds to its transport links and its relationship to the emerging Arctic trading routes.
A copy of the atlas will be on display in a short exhibition on Level 2 at the Lighthouse between 17 April – 10 June 2015.
