We have a page on the original building, a page on the competition, and a page of the controversy (lots of letters!).

We felt it was time to simply focus on the new building itself and in fact with all emphasis on images: proposed views and actual views as the building goes through metamorphosis from empty site to concrete structure and soon to the glazing, more images will be added in the coming months, as we have done over the months since start on site.

Views still welcome for posting, to info@glasgowarchitecture.co.uk, but below all the images!
