GSA to award Steve Inch an honorary doctorate
June 13 2012
Inch served in that role for over 20 years and was a key part of the team which put together Glasgow’s successful 2014 Commonwealth Games bid and a driving force behind the International Financial Services District.
A believer in harnessing physical development to create economic and social gain, Inch has cited Charles Rennie Mackintosh as a source of inspiration for his ideas on the relationship between buildings and their surroundings.
Commenting on his accolade Inch said: "Prior to retiring from Glasgow City Council I worked with GSA on a great many projects and am therefore fully aware of the role it has played in the ongoing regeneration of the city. I feel deeply honoured that my contribution has been recognised through the award of this honorary doctorate, and I look forward to continuing to support GSA in the years to come."
Professor Seona Reid, Director of the Glasgow School of Art, added: “Steve Inch has had a seminal influence on the regeneration of Glasgow and the growth of the arts and creative industries in the city.”
