Future Glasgow

[Proposed skyscraper on clydeside]THE FUNNY THING ABOUT COMPUTERS THESE DAYS IS THE WAY DIFFERENT SOFTWARE TYPES MERGE.

For example, you take a digital photograph (or scan in a normal photograph), then take a CAD drawing that has been rendered, and then mix them together in photoshop or paintshop. It certainly gives a good idea of the future (usually in good weather). In the photos here, you might actually recognise some of the existing buildings to locate the proposed new ones. Great fun.

Hey, does this look like Ingram Street? Hmm, maybe one day it will…

Or how about this one…?

Does that make West Regent Street any better? Glasgow is attracting a lot of weird new architecture — and weird just for the sake of it.

And let us not forget the totally gigantic Elphinstone Tower…

Let’s hope these confident, expressive buildings have a reasonable build-quality (for a change). Possible only because of the poles, probably.

    That’s the worst architecture I’ve ever seen. Why not recreate old architecture? Don’t mix it up with new features, just old architecture. (On the outside.)
