The proposal was to develop the site at 27 Sawmillfield Street into a walled garden with a multiuse pavilion providing a flexible performance and production space for the arts.
The garden was established through the freeform planting of wildflowers in cracks, corners and on top of the walls to create punctuations of colour and scent.
This unique performance space brought together the different creative community groups that use the industrial estate and surrounding area: Glasgow Sculpture Studios, The Glue Factory, Glasgow School of Art, Scottish Opera, RSAMD, National Theatre for Scotland and Impact Arts.
The idea was to provide a communal creative space for the area and encourage crossdisciplinary collaboration between the different user groups.
The Bothy Project was phased over two stages. The first stage included making the site accessible and secure and establishing the wildflower garden along with having an opening event. The second phase focused on designing and developing the temporary performance space
