17 Bain Street, Calton, G40 2JZ Glasgow, United Kingdom
73% of us in Glasgow live in flats, compared with around 24% in most comparable English cities. In Spain and Germany flatted living is much more prevalent, so are we just more European, north of the border? Or are our traditional tenements actually a quirk of British housing? Our panel of speakers will discuss the character of tenements in Glasgow and beyond and what our housing pattern means for the city.
Panellists will include:
Florian Urban, Glasgow School of Art
John Joseph Burns, Holmes Miller Architects
Lluis Bosch, Institute of Urban Landscape, Barcelona
Graham Bell, North of England Civic Trust
Chair: Ranald MacInnes, Historic Environment Scotland.
This is the latest in our series of successful 'The City Talks' events. The idea of The City Talks is that they are more of a two-way debate between audience and panel, kick-started by the Chair. The Chair will introduce the topic, and each panel member will be asked to speak briefly on the topic. The floor will then be open for questions, feedback and comments, and discussions with the panel. Previous topics have included: «What should we do with historic buildings that have outlived their original use?», «Can we have a cafe-culture in Glasgow when it rains all the time?», «Placemaking and the River Clyde», «Can a historic Building be as sustainable as a new built?» and «How does Heritage Regeneration affect a city's communities?»
