The project to create a multi-purpose performance space on the former bandstand site in Queen’s Park, Langside, Glasgow, came about through community discussion and the Scottish Government’s decision to support a few pilot projects, of which this is one. It has received Scottish Government pump-priming funding towards the estimated project cost. It is being led by a steering group from four Community Councils – Crosshill/Govanhill, Langside, Battlefield and Camphill, Mt Florida and Shawlands and Strathbungo. The project is also being supported by Glasgow City Council.

Further background about the project can be found at www.qppp.org.uk
The Judging Panel was chaired by Martin McKay, Past President GIA and comprised:
Claire Charlwood and Scott Mackay representing the Community Councils. Prof Gerry Grams, Glasgow City Council Design Advisor, Katrina Brown of arts organisation, The Common Guild and Martin Docherty of GIA Architecture People and Places Committee.
