Anderston mural marks ongoing estate regeneration
A landmark mural co-designed by Collective Architecture and Stage 3 students at the Glasgow School of Art has been unveiled to mark its ongoing regeneration, with works currently underway on phases four and five of the master plan.

Built on behalf of Sanctuary Scotland Housing Association the installation was conceived by a group of ten students over the course of a series of workshops which served to channel local pride.

GSA tutor Nick Walker of Collective Architecture commented: “The students are thrilled with the outcome of a project many months in the planning. The finished mural is testament to the group’s hard work in researching, consulting and ultimately designing an artwork that embodies Anderston’s past, present and future.”

A further 206 homes are planned for the estate in the final phase of a decade long master plan.

Looks great, but it also looks entirely 'thievable', particularly if you're looking to adorn your cool student pad with giant A - R - S - E lettering, or similar.

I give it 2 weeks.

Looks great. Just a shame the main lettering is in bloody Arial... there are other, much nicer fonts out there, people.
