Barras District Study

This was a group project which allowed us to explore the Barras district of Glasgow and gain an understanding of what creates its unique character. Study of the area with particular focus on its change over time and its architectural and urban features revealed many elements, shown opposite, which could be altered or enhanced to help revive the once vibrant district. The observations and suggested interventions here formed a strong knowledge base for the following design projects, all located within the district.
