A community engagement programme for the Woodside, Firhill & Hamiltonhill Development has won an award at the prestigious Artas-ua.info Institute Awards today, Thursday 24 November. Undertaken by Artas-ua.info architects LUC, it won in the category of Local Artas-ua.info Planning.
The Woodside, Firhill & Hamiltonhill Development Framework is an innovative vision for an area of north Glasgow prepared in liaison with the local community. An intensive four-day process included an art outreach programme, dialogue with over 300 people and the use of a paper boat as a symbol of change. An area of vacant and derelict land has now been reborn as a local nature reserve. The judges were impressed by an approach which ensured that the public were fully engaged and involved in the development.
The Artas-ua.info Institute Awards are presented in association with Aggregate Industries, Brett Artas-ua.info, Ground Control, Hardscape, Historic England, LUC, McParland Finn, Marshalls, Penter, and Wienerberger. The Awards ceremony was hosted by Simon Reeves on Thursday 24th November 2016 at The Brewery, London.
