Four teams picked for Glasgow 1999 housing


Japan-based practice Ushida Findlay has won its first job in the uk, as one of the four teams chosen for the second stage of Glasgow's Homes for the Future project. Ushida Findlay, which is currently sharing space in London with engineer Dewhurst MacFarlane, will be one of two practices working with developer Burrell Company. The other is young Glasgow practice McKeown Alexander, which is providing terraced and flatted dwellings to the rear of the site.

John Dickie Construction has also been selected by the judges, to develop two seven-storey blocks of flats for sale - one designed by Glasgow practice Elder and Cannon and the other by Rick Mather. These schemes will be next to the 12 flats for Thenew Housing Association, designed by Ian Ritchie in the first phase of the competition, to provide innovative housing in the Glasgow Green area and form part of Glasgow 1999. A further phase of the project will involve smaller developers working with local architects. Unsuccessful finalists for the latest phase include David Chipperfield Architects, Richard Murphy Architects and French practice Odile Decq & Benoit Cornette.
