Hoskins to design £6m submarine museum
Gareth Hoskins Architects has released the first images of a proposed £6million Scottish Submarine Centre
The museum will commemorate the more than 5,300 Commonwealth sailors killed in action with a glass wall bearing the names of submariners lost at sea.
The exact location of the new museum has not been decided, but it is understood the preferred site is on the banks of the River Clyde in Helensburgh.
The museum, which will also honour Scotland’s role in submarine building, will house an X51 class submarine donated by the Royal Navy, a descendant of the X-class submarines which trained in the Firth of Clyde during World War II.
Gareth Hoskins has also designed the £47million redevelopment of the National Museum Of Scotland, the Culloden Battlefield Memorial Centre and the Bridge Arts Centre.
