R kunstCollaboration is an important part of Studio Bof’s work. Within specific projects we work closely with renowned architectural practices providing conservation advise. This also involves us working with other consultants such as engineers, project managers, lighting designers and specialist sub contractors.

Rachel also works more directly with other types of organisations, to provide support on their projects and programmes. Recently she spent seven months working with Impact Arts as a mentor to one of the graduates on their community arts programme. This resulted in workshops and an exhibition at the The Lighthouse in Glasgow relating to the design of cities and how people can express their views on their environment.

Within her role as a Board Member of the Friends of the Royal Scottish Academy, she runs events that provide a forum for artists and architects to show and discuss their work to the wider public. Rachel also initiates collaborative projects between Scottish Art Colleges and businesses and organisations to provide live projects and events for students to engage in.
