Future of Scotland's central belt focus of new exhibition

August 15 2007

Four radical design proposals for Scotland’s central belt are to be unveiled at a new exhibition at Glasgow’s Lighthouse Gallery later this week.

The SHIFTS exhibition aims to highlight the need for a shift away from the exclusive prominence of Glasgow and Edinburgh towards a more even architectural and urban landscape, and within the context of sustainable development.

Proposals include work from Cadell2 and David Simm of Jan Gehl Architects; Collective Architecture in association with Pru Chiles of the Bureau of Design and Reasearch; Groves Raines Architects Studio in association with David van Eldik of Routeonwerp and John Crawford of Scottish Enterprise and lastly from Voluntary Design and Build in association with Eva Dalman from Malmo and Gerry Grams of Glasgow City Council.

The exhibition runs from 18th August-14 October, with a single day seminar and debate on the 1st October, before going on tour. More information can be found at
