Student outlines alternate Red Road vision

The film notes that during the 1960s Glasgow had the largest high rise build rate in Europe, a statistic which had reversed by the late1990s when it had the largest high rise demolition rate.
Red Road alone cost £154.6m to build and will cost £60m to tear down and redevelop - a fact which Zoechbauer uses as a springboard to imagine whether imaginative re-use of the structures might represent a better path.
Inspired by the ideas of Archigram and Rem Koolhaas an incremental series of expansion and remodeling is envisaged to carry the landmark blocks into the future.
