For the July AJ, we take an in-depth look at Glasgow’s architecture scene including practices who are repurposing spaces in a low-budget, high-impact way.
We visit Collective Architecture’s transformation of a 1920s printing works into a co-working hub, and discover how Allander Leisure Centre, designed by Holmes Miller, is an example of a new type of leisure-cum-care typology.
The Riverside Museum by Zaha Hadid Architects completed twelve years ago, and we revisit this harbourside giant to see how the building is performing now. In addition we round up key past and future building projects by practices including O’DonnellBrown and Graeme Nicholls Architects.
Also in the issue Stallan-Brand’s Paul Stallan writes an essay explaining why Glasgow is ‘his energy’, and this month’s news feature details how regeneration is stitching the city together. And we catch up with Glasgow’s ‘young guns’, initially profiled in a 2017 AJ, to see how they have progressed as practices.
In Culture you can read about the work of Scotland’s Architecture Fringe, and there are opinion pieces from the Secret Architect, Toko Andrews and David Grandorge, along with the monthly competitions round-up and Hellman’s cartoon.
