Graeme Nicholls reveals proposal for O-shaped Glasgow housing scheme


I often would like to see more formal solutions instead of the mess which is much of today's housing, but would suggest that this scheme is too formal. Yes it would be a hard task to try and re-create any sense of urban fabric on this site, but not impossible. For me the form is too strict, and I would find it difficult to live there. Also I think neighbours might become too much in one's face (although likely they will all be Rangers supporters). Taking precedence from a pre-existing greyhound track and "Ra Big Hoose" is quite frankly silly. A better starting point might have been taking how a few blocks of Sauciehall Street (or better Buccleuch Street) could be made to work. Best of luck "going forward" with a very difficult site. I will make a note to go and look when it is finished.
