'celebratory engagement with the public realm'

Phil Coffey's theoretical project for Glasgow combines an urban design proposal with a design for a new extension for the existing Tron Theatre.

The project aims to link the much-neglected area of the Gorbals with Glasgow's vibrant cultural centre, the Merchant City.
