City of Glasgow College, Riverside Campus, Glasgow

Campus creates a new landmark

Michael Laird Architects/Reiach and Hall Architects

Contract value: £66m

Also won an RIAS Award


Located at the edge of a major crossing of the River Clyde, the site marks a gateway in the city and projects the College’s importance as a civic institution as well as creating a new landmark. New buildings are organised around two civic spaces – a cloistered garden and a grand hall – which encourage students to mix and realise opportunities for learning across disciplines.
