Three Scottish firms to join Mackintosh's House for an Art Lover

Gareth Hoskins Architects, JM Architects and landscape firm Gross Max have jointly won a competition to design installations in Bellahouston Park, the home of Mackintosh's famous House for an Art Lover.

The three schemes - which were picked from 14 submissions - will form part of a concerted effort to transform the park into 'ArtPark Glasgow', a sculpture-led venue for Glasgow's art world.

The competition, organised by House for an Art Lover, called for 'imaginative but realistic concepts for structures or installations to be set within the landscape'.

The winners will now be built at the rate of one a year over the next three years. They were picked as schemes that would be compatible with one another within the grounds. Each winning team will receive £100,000.

The Hoskins scheme (pictured) - which was developed by Gordon Gibb, Scott Young and Alistair Tooze - takes the form of a line along one of the current routes through the park. On this line will be randomly placed 'trade stones', each representing a phase in Glasgow's urban development.
