Graeme Nicholls reveals proposal for O-shaped Glasgow housing scheme


So sorry to be pedantic, but the plan of this project is not shaped "like a broken O". Nor, as per the text, is it a case of "two horseshoe-plan blocks". Horseshoes have quite different, rather bowed plans. It's perfectly obvious that the plans of the two blocks are two Us, with their open ends facing eachother. And is there something snooty about the plan? If we borrow Nancy Mitford's terms for the distinction between the upper and middle classes in 1955, the plan of Graeme Nicholls scheme is very U indeed.
