Commonwealth Games Athletes’ Village exhibition opens
May 16 2014
Set to be home to 6,500 athletes over the summer the village will go on to provide 700 homes and a care home in legacy mode with work illustrated through use of scale models and display boards.
Councillor Archie Graham, executive member for the Commonwealth Games at Glasgow City Council, said: “The Athletes’ Village will without doubt be one of the most memorable images of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and a symbol of the regeneration of Dalmarnock.
“It will not only provide a home for some of the greatest athletes in the world this summer, but will create a new neighbourhood for Glasgow not long after the last athlete has gone. I am sure that this exhibition will provide a fascinating insight into what has become an example of what can be done in new developments in Glasgow and Scotland.”
The athletes’ village was delivered by CCG, Cruden, Mactaggart & Mickel and WH Malcolm in collaboration with Glasgow City Council to designs by RMJM, led by the former Paul Stallan Studio at RMJM.
