Glasgow Urban Wetlands

Group 23: Rebecca Robertson, Nichole-Ann Samson, Ben Scragg, Maria Loizou, Cameron Mcallister, Sissy O’Neill

Glasgow and its river were quite literally shaped by the industrial revolution: our proposal imagines a world where the catalyst of a green-industrial revolution shapes the river once more, returning it to a more natural, pre-industrial state. The river banks become wetlands, with a network of towers acting as observation points and hides to discover the wildlife this new urban habitat attracts. Cluthas ferry people along the river and newly converted canal-streets connect the river and canal network through the heart of the city.
