Protecting and Promoting the Evolving Maritime Heritage of the Tidal River Clyde

Govan Graving Docks Student Design Competition

The Competition

We are preparing to launch a design competition, with the University of Strathclyde, for final year degree architecture students to produce masterplan concepts for a maritime park at Govan Graving Docks.

We have developed a broad brief for the competition that will run during the 2017-18 academic year.

We would like to hear from professional architects interested in taking part in a judging panel or steering group, as well as hosts who can potentially provide venues for a series of public exhibitions.

Design Competition

Public Exhibition

The design competition entries will be displayed in a public venue (or series of venues) to enable community and stakeholder feedback. This feedback along with the competition entries will be used to inform the preparation of a brief for a formal masterplan for regeneration of the graving docks. We aim to present a masterplan to Glasgow City Council by the end of 2020.

Judging and Awards

The competition judging will run separately from any academic assessment of the students' work. The results will also not have a direct single influence on the development of a formal masterplan - with the final masterplan brief potentially taking in a range of the students' ideas.

We aim to introduce a range prizes for winner and runner up students and are in the process of seeking sponsors who will be able to provide these. Awards may include cash prizes, non-cash prizes, career development support, internships, etc.
