Gordon Murray and Alan Dunlop Architects
gm+ad in China
Gordon Murray and Alan Dunlop Architects are included in a new global architecture publication. The book features top architects from around the world and their projects and is to be published in early 2007. It will be the first time the Scottish architects have been given such world wide recognition and gm+ad are included alongside recognised international names.
The publication follows on from the visit of a distinguished group of Chinese architects to Glasgow in 2005. It was clear that the delegation from China were very interested in our work” says Alan Dunlop “they were very encouraging, particularly toward our city projects and were keen to learn more. China offers huge opportunities for architects and possibilities and gives us access to a new audience and potential source of work”
This publication will be the first in a sequence high quality books that will include more gm+ad projects. The architects are in discussion with the Chinese publishers to include, in the future, projects such as the Radisson SAS hotel, Sentinel and Hazelwood, the new school for children with dual sensory impairment, currently being built in Dumbreck.
Gordon Murray and Alan Dunlop are now making their mark worldwide and this global architecture publication follows on from a recent visit by a film crew from Montreal, who were interested in the work of gm+ad and architecture in Glasgow.
The film crew from TV MAXPLUS PRODUCTIONS INC TV5 interviewed the architects in the Radisson for a television series to be released in Canada in March 2007 and also visited Hazelwood.
“We are now working in Ireland and in the North of England,” adds Gordon Murray, “and hopefully soon on projects in Europe, although Glasgow and Scotland is still our main source of inspiration. In fact, it’s been a productive last few years for us, where we’ve won over twenty national and international awards for architecture. Our JKS Workshops project in Clydebank has been short listed for the RIAS Andrew Doolan Award as the best building in Scotland in 2006. This is the third time we’ve been short listed in the five years of the award, something no other architect in Scotland has achieved”.
