Today Glasgow’s city centre provides residents and visitors with an exciting mix of shopping, culture, leisure and entertainment experiences; but it also deals with constant economic competitiveness as well as daily challenges that impact on its regeneration.

Many challenges are familiar to us all, such as vacant sites, shops and buildings, under-utilised plot of land, changes in the retail patterns, safety concerns, traffic and emissions.

Glasgow City Council have appointed a team led by MVRDV and Austin-Smith:Lord, supported by Space Syntax and a multidisciplinary team, to develop with stakeholders and local communities, Regeneration Frameworks for four districts within the City Centre.
