George Square, Glasgow
Shortlisted design as part of an international competition to redevelop Glasgow’s George Square. The proposal was a joint venture with Graeme Massie Architects.
Our proposal for George Square takes the form of an ‘urban salon’ – Glasgow’s greatest public room; a space that is fully inclusive and welcoming to all. The white stone surface contrasts with the darker surroundings and sets the Square apart as a place of civic importance. Existing statues are recomposed beneath an expressive scalloped loggia while mature trees, water and lighting create areas of distinct atmosphere and further enliven the space. The design also proposed to re-establish the cenotaph as a distinct space on the square, using a grove of mature oak trees.
Glasgow City Council
In 2012 Glasgow City Council launched an international design contest to redevelop George Square as part of the city’s preparation for hosting the 2014 Commonwealth Games. jmarchitects were shortlisted to the final 6 to provide a design.
The shortlist comprised six teams including designs by jmarchitects, French architects Agence Ter, US-based James Corner Field Operations and UK firms Burns + Nice, Gustafson Porter and John McAslan & Partners.
The project was abandoned by Glasgow City Council shortly after the competition was judged.
