Glasgow @ Hand - Jacob Dibble & Alessandra Feliciotti

This foundation masterplan is based on the combination of several different strategies. By tunneling the M8, space will be created to create vital North/ South and East/ West connections which were not previously possible. The Clydeside Expressway will be converted into an Urban Boulvard and 4 new bridges across the Clyde will be created.

The plan focuses on the opportunities created by adding a North/ South City train line which bypasses the City (per tunnel strategy) and also acts as a North / South line on the Subway Loop. The upgrade of the Anderston Station to become the Anderston Interchange Station and the creation of a central station at the former site of the Kingston Bridge in Kingston will be the focal points of new district amenity centres (nodes).

Vital Sighthill- Martina Donatova & Tereza Haubeltova

Sighthill is interesting because it was never included in the city structure or policies as it was isolated and used as a railway and chemical industry facility. Therefore the land was underused since the railway and heavy industry disappeared and the large isolating  infrastructures of railway and M8 motorway appeared. The intentions to improve Sighthill led to including the area to COD planning. The place is generally perceived as dangerous place,  a haven for immigrants, drug dealers and criminals. Undermaintained Sighthill Park helps this atmosphere howevever has a great potential of being one of the leisure centres of the city (even more when connected to Clyde Canal).

Our vision is to create a neighbourhood with its identity, balanced density and good system of urbanised streets and public transport, which will be able to interact with Townhead, Royston and Port Dundas and attract desired activities. This will be achieved by downgrading the M8 motorway into a boulevard, creating a new urban fabric with adaptation of existing elements, creating new nodes and good distribution of densities and finally providing new functional public transport.
