Clyde banks crane gain
Collective Architecture and Clydebank Rebuilt are celebrating the award of an International Award for Architecture for the Titan Crane and Visitor’s Centre, a key part of the redevelopment of Clydebank.

The International Architectural Awards are organised by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum to promote international architecture and new and cutting edge design on a global scale.
 
This year the Museum received nearly 1,000 entries for architecture, landscape architecture, and urban planning from a wide range of practices around the world. The jury consisted of a distinguished group of American architects and educators under the auspices of The New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects.

The Titan Crane was one of only 14 projects from the UK (including Glasgow’s Hazelwood School) to be given the award, in recognition of its iconic status as a symbol of the Clyde’s industrial heritage and as a catalyst for the current regeneration of the Clydebank waterfront.

The Titan crane will be featured as part of an Exhibition in Athens in January and February 2009. The exhibition will then travel to other locations within Europe until the end of June.
