TAKTAL is a spatial development agency.

We are based in Glasgow where there is an abundance of vacant buildings and sites following industrial decline. We develop projects to activate these spaces in sustainable ways.

With experience in architecture, space management and events we connect people and spaces to create social, economic and cultural value.
We produce a quarterly Pecha Kucha event - quick fire talks from influencers and instigators, each show 20 images for 20 seconds.
We are responsible for developing a creative community for The Whisky Bond and manage the communications, events and lettings of workspace.
We've been working closely with The Glue Factory to research new business models and programming and governance systems to help establish a sustainable arts venue and workspace.
Working closely with the building owners we developed a coworking space for the creative community of Glasgow. We designed the space, communication strategy and business model. We're now responsible for the ongoing management of the space and the events programme.
For Sonica 2013 we were commissioned to find a unique space and deliver an ambitious programme of work as part of the sonic art festival.
For Sonica 2012 we commissioned Picture Window to produce a programme of events and installations to animate vacant commercial spaces and shop fronts across Glasgow.
When The Glasgow School of Art campus was being re-developed we took the opportunity to produce an exhibition that invited artists to re-interpret the spaces of the iconic venue.
We organised a series of events for the Glasgow School of Art some taking place in established venues and others in disused spaces. With each production we explored how new materials and lighting installations influenced and informed the space.
Through the construction of a series of large scale interactive installations we invited the people of Wandsworth to visit and engage with the experimental art space Testbed1 as part of the Wandsworth Arts Festival 2011.
