City of Glasgow College City Campus was designed by Reiach & Hall and Michael Laird Architects. The buildling opened in 2016 and was awarded the RIBA Award for Scotland 2017 and RIBA National Award 2017. It was shortlisted for the RIBA Stirling Prize 2017.

Refreshments will be served after the event.

The title 'A Place for the Work and the Human Being' is borrowed from the sub-title of a text by Swiss artist Rémy Zaugg (1943 – 2005), ‘The Art Museum of My Dreams’, written in 1986, translated into English in 2013 and now out of print.
