Tradeston Visual Media Arts Centre The proposed Master plan will take precedence from the narrow streets that once cut the urban blocks of the 1900’s Tradeston. These streets gave it a unique character and set it apart from the rest of Glasgow. The Visual Arts Media Centre will enforce the themes of the Master plan and become a focal point for the regeneration of Tradeston. A spine staircase connects the existing with the new, the creative studios with the gallery spaces. Clad in perforated Corten sheets only cut by window openings the building takes on a sculptural feel and the dramatic staging of open versus closed, visible versus hidden, is transformed into a play of perception through the movement and changing viewpoints of the observer, which is reflected by the forever changing views through the newly proposed narrow streets.
