The layout of the galleries configured symmetrically around the East and West Courts and the Central Hall could not be simpler. However, during the last 100 years there have been a myriad of changes that have, to a greater or lesser extent, put demands on a building that it was not originally designed to accommodate.

River Clyde building Glasgow Architecture Tours

The proposed Finnieston residential development aims to establish a high standard of architectural design for this riverfront site within the City. The proposals seek to make a dynamic, contemporary yet lasting contribution to the entire future development of the River Clyde frontage in this key city location.

The Lighthouse Glasgow Architecture Tours

The Lighthouse, although in centre of the city, is in a difficult site, tucked away off the main drag. This means signage and marketing have to be well-organised, and the logo designed by Mariscal – who did the Barcelona Olympics logo (the dog holding a torch) – makes a strong impact.
