In Pictures: Glasgow by 2057

Glasgow Green pleasure beach

Students at the Mackintosh School of Architecture are displaying their vision of Glasgow by 2057 at the McLellan Galleries. This image shows the Glasgow Green Beach.

Glasgow Green pleasure beach

The pleasure beach would be part of a larger idea to create a new use for the river and a use for old industrial land. Students say this will grow communities.

Rowing at Hampden

Rowing at Hampden is aimed at providing a new venue for the 2014 Commonwealth Games and contributing to the 'intensification of services' south of the river.

Market under the M8

A market under the M8. The idea is to deal with the edges of a very busy road. This would be achieved by changing the quality of space by 'activating the areas' with markets.

Shawfield Stadium

Shawfield Stadium would be the new home to Clyde FC. Fans would vote online every game to decide the colour of the stadium's outer skin depending on the mood of the crowd.

City farm in Sighthill, Glasgow

This city farm would use existing space beside the railway and in between industrial units to reintroduce farming into the deprived area Sighthill.

Inhabited bridge

The inhabited bridge would extend the busy and prosperous Byres Road over the Clyde and act as a catalyst for the regeneration of Ibrox and Govan.

Science Centre and BBC waterfront

This image shows a proposed new island created on the site of the former shipbuilding docks, which houses the new BBC Scotland building and National Theatre of Scotland.

Southside cultural quarter

A new area of Glasgow, based on the model of the Southbank in London. Cultural public buildings would be extended west along the Clyde.

Clydeport reedbed

The idea is to create a new wildlife and nature reserve in Clydeport in the west of the city, on the site of existing low density industrial units.

M8 construction

The 'destruction caused' by the M8 motorway in 1968. One of the groups proposes the removal of the M8 and Kingston Bridge.
