Glasgow appoints design guru to aid regeneration

  • Comment

Glasgow City Council has brought in a city design adviser to provide advice on its longterm regeneration projects.

Gerry Grams, who has been design director at Reid Architecture Scotland for the past five years, has taken over the new position of city design adviser to the council's chief executive.

Grams said: 'It is a senior corporate role intended to help the council improve its design standards. The job ranges from the very small things to the larger masterplanning ideas.

'I'll take part in the chief executive's infrastructural groups and will be involved in the development of longer-term projects, such as Zaha Hadid's new waterfront museum, the new sports arena and new transport system, ' he added.

Grams will also provide input on other ongoing projects such as public-realm work.

It is the first time in 12 years that the council has had such a role. Grams has been researching the job with Ricardo Marini, the assistant to Edinburgh's city 'design champion', Terry Farrell.
