Calum Paterson (He/Him)
My third year project the ‘Sighthill Urban Food Exchange’ explores two of my main architectural interests; the social impact of architectural design on bettering lives and enhancing communities; furthermore, architectural history’s rooted importance in culture and placemaking.
I am also passionate about the role of social research within architecture.
Sighthill Urban Food Exchange
The UFEX is a new typology of building aiming to revive the canal as a bio-diverse and low carbon means of transport for fresh food directly into the city and facilitate community exchange. Designed for a low-carbon future aiming to compliment the residential transformation of the Sighthill canal neighbourhood in Glasgow.
The right to a healthy life should be universal and the UFEX aims to provide a stage for this; this belief, the canal’s heritage and goals for a a low carbon future have steered the design of the UFEX at Sighthill hoping to provide a new landmark for the city.
