Emirates Arena Glasgow

Emirates Arena Glasgow | Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome

Design: 3DReid

The £116m Emirates Arena and The Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, Glasgow, is the only major new sports facility for the 2014 Commonwealth Games. The building will have a lasting post-Games legacy, as a centre for sporting excellence, a community sports facility, and as a catalyst to major investment and regeneration in the area.

The Hydro Glasgow

The Hydro, Glasgow – SECC Arena

The building’s key characteristic is the ETFE facade which has an enjoyable suppleness about it. The softness of this pillowed, translucent surface contrasts well with the robust base. In between is a varying width of planting which will eventually form a hairy green apron to the building. For once the reality has turned out better tha the CGIs!
