BEEP BEEP BEEP!



I feel this website would be great for gathering ideas on how to produce the up and coming master plan... I came across CPHX whilst researching for my dissertation, have a look there is tons of interesting stuff. Oh, shock it's in Copenhagen ;)

BBC News - Bradford "derelict spaces"

Saw this, thought it might be of interest.
It's about what to do in this financial climate with derelict spaces... green spaces, football pitches etc... (Bradford)

NY times article : Reinventing America's cities - the time is now

Here's an interesting article REINVENTING AMERICA'S CITIES (published March 25,2009) about reinventing American cities and it compares cities around the world and all the issues involved - as we have discussed before. Quite a long article but it might help with making our narrative more realistic if we can relate back to real-life issues.

Ordinary Architecture : Parking Structure

In line with the theme, this is a new built parking structure integrated with mixed uses and is set in a new urban development zone which is slightly similar to proposed site in Glasgow. Attached is the link for anyone who's interested in solving issues of parking and how to adapt to noise via facade treatment, etc











Clyde and its Tributaries


Heres a little research on the tributaries that join the Clyde on our site! It may influence the way in which we deal with water!
