TOWNSHIPS, ARCHITECTURE & THE ROOM OF POETICS
BARD is an architecture studio incorporated in 2016, building on experiences of its founder Ruairidh C. Moir. BARD works on a range of architectural commissions for private, public and commercial clients from our base in Glasgow.
Our model places an emphasis on process - promoting enquiry, research and exploration with clients firmly positioned as part of this extended conversation. With an extended network of friends and colleagues, we are adept at forming coalesced teams tailored to any given design challenge.
BARD brings together an experience of working in international artisan studios, academic teaching alongside an active concern for arts, heritage and theory to produce intriguing and sometimes surprising results for our clients and partners.
We explore each site and programme specifically with a view to finding latent narratives to drive forward any given project.
Our work aims to be allegorical. Using physical models, sketch, watercolour and hand drawings we explore and test our thinking and through form, mass, scale and material in order to compose an architecture imbued with depth of meaning. BARD promotes appropriate innovation. We pride ourselves on being a highly collaborative studio.
