GCC commence Springburn Park Winter Gardens remediation work
August 19 2013
This will be carried out over the next seven weeks along with work to lay a safe access route and establish a secure perimeter around the site.
In tandem with this work the Glasgow Institute of Architects, through Chris Stewart of Collective Architecture and Jonathan McQuillan of Andersen, Bell & Christie, have taken part in informal discussions with campaigners about setting up an architectural competition for landscaping the open shell space of the Winter Gardens and adjacent walled garden.
Such a measure is intended to reintegrate the structure into its parkland setting until such time as a viable end use and funding package for a full restoration can be agreed.
Discussions to this end are currently on-going with the expectation of opening discussions to the public during Doors Open Day on the 21 and 22 of September.
