New Lanark extends GSA relationship to develop a long-term vision
December 11 2019
Custodians of the New Lanark World Heritage Site have invited students from the Glasgow School of Art (GSA) to continue to work with the attraction after praising their degree show proposals.
This year Stage 2 architecture students investigated new forms of living and working within the former seat of industry and these ideas will now inform future development.
Jane Masters, head of heritage & development at New Lanark Trust, commented: “As a ‘client’, we are excited at the prospect of working with the school again, and developing projects which may, in future, come to fruition on the site.”
A variety of submissions caught the eye of trustees including integrating workshops with housing to encourage arts and crafts, promoting inter-generational gardening along the path to the Falls of Clyde and the creation of a vertical garden village.
The partnership will see a fresh intake of Stage 2 students undertake further work in support of a World Heritage Site Management Plan.
