Mackintosh School of Architecture

Stage 5 City Studio

What does ethics mean for Glasgow? This is the question the students of Stage 5 have posed, conducting urban investigations throughout Glasgow at scales from the everyday through to the international, uncovering and articulating the structure of the city and its communities. Together we have read, observed, measured, drawn, photographed & filmed the rich and stimulating metropolitan relationships which shape the character of life in our complex diverse city.
