MVRDV & Austin-Smith:Lord to deliver Glasgow’s City Centre Districts plan
May 3 2016
The quartet of initiatives aim to unlock economic, cultural and social improvements for the city through improvements to urban structure, targeting issues such as vacant buildings, under-utilised plots, changes in retail patterns, city centre living, public open space, safety and traffic.
Winy Maas of MVRDV said, “For the residents it is to make the city a vibrant and exciting place to live in at this moment. But we have to look ahead as well and create the plan for a city that can adapt and change in response to whatever the future throws at it; whilst at the same time capturing and developing the identity of the city and its people and further stimulating programmatic and economic development.”
Graham Ross, partner at Austin-Smith:Lord added: "There are opportunities to make small scale interventions to enhance the city for all. There are also areas that require significant transformation to address longstanding issues. We look forward to collaborating with Glaswegians, the Council and stakeholders to shape an exciting future for these districts."
Space Syntax, Urban Tide, Douglas Wheeler Associates, WAVEparticle, Ryden, Gerry Grams, Gardiner + Theobald and Arup complete the round-up of appointments.
