Euan Maharg wins Seven Lochs green bridge competition
November 15 2013Seven Lochs Wetland Park, Glasgow.
Maharg saw off competition from four other practices to earn the nod of the judging panel but the there is no word as to when, or if, the unfunded scheme will ever be built.
The winning solution design involves construction of a pre-fab concrete tunnel above which would a sunken path would be laid, bounded by a 20m wide strip of woodland. This would serve to open up access to pedestrians and cyclists as well as providing cover for nesting birds and migrating animals.
A separate ‘tree top line’ would also be built offering a canopy level view across the surrounding wetlands before heading on to Drumpelier Country Park.
