Pop-up gallery, riverfront college and modern languages classrooms lead SDA winners
The Scottish Design Awards have wrapped up in style with a pop-up gallery, riverfront college and modern languages classrooms walking away with the top awards on the night.

City of Glasgow College scooped the architecture grand prix, one of seven design awards it picked up on the night, for Michael Laird and Reiach & Hall Architects with the judges commenting: “This building faced a challenging brief yet was executed with quiet elegance, rigour and attention to detail thus producing a timeless civic building that will enhance Glasgow’s culture.”

With demolition having just completed on the former college building the new build can now be viewed in the round for the first time ahead of completion of its bigger brother on Cathedral Street.

Joining both design teams on the winner’s podium were Here +Now C.IC. which picked up Jestico + Whiles board director Heinz Richardson’s chairman’s award for architecture and Page\Park who were named architecture practice of the year – courtesy of their consistent delivery of ‘sensitive and mature’ work which ‘shows timeless elegance concern and attention to detail’.

REALLY like the Nautical College buildings. Hopefully some equally nice and tall (maybe even taller) buildings will spring up behind them?
