MASTER PLANNING/LANDSCAPING: Master Planning
Glasgow City Council
A multi-disciplinary team led by Glasgow-based architecture practice, Austin-Smith:Lord, working in collaboration with leading international architects and urbanists, MVRDV, were appointed by Glasgow City Council to develop regeneration frameworks for four of the nine districts identified in the City Centre Strategy.
This District Regeneration Framework outlines a vision, projects and an action plan to redefine the Broomielaw district of Glasgow in the next ten years and beyond. This Regeneration Framework includes neighbourhoods on both banks of the River Clyde beyond the area many would define as ‘the Broomielaw’.
Preparing this Framework has been a collaborative, collective effort involving thousands of Glaswegians to develop bold plans for (Y)our City Centre. Local resident, business, civic and cultural communities, developers, investors and visitors to the city were invited to share ideas and shape a dynamic vision of what should go where and why.
This city’s motto is “Let Glasgow Flourish”. If Glasgow is to flourish in the 21st Century the city centre will have to be at the vanguard of wider regeneration, with the Broomielaw a key catalyst in redesigning (Y)our City Centre in the future.
