The Glasgow Institute of Architects in partnership with Springburn Winter Gardens Trust have launched an architectural competition for ideas to redevelop Springburn Winter Gardens which have lain derelict for over 30 years.
The competition, titled “An intervention at Springburn Winter Gardens; to provide a place where people can gather and share memories” aims to raise awareness of the wider issues surrounding the loss of key community assets and cohesion in Springburn. The approach suggested by the Glasgow Institute of Architects is to make a series of incremental steps toward full renovation. The first step should be small, engage the local community and bring the structure back into the daily lives of the residents of Springburn and lovers of the park.
Registration for the competition has now closed and the final date for entries is the 28th of August. All entries will be digitally printed by the MakLab and The entries will be displayed in an exhibition of models that will tour a number of venues facilitated by Glasgow City Council and Glasgow Institute of Architects.
