Commonwealth Games 2014

There’s currently considerable interest in sports architecture, triggered in part by Olympic preparations and the finally-completed Wembley Stadium. Here, there’s increasing optimism about Glasgow’s bid to host the 2014 Commonwealth Games, and it’s interesting to look at the bid’s website to get a feel for the potential impact on the city and its infrastructure. There are digital flythroughs of some of the proposed developments, some of which are completely new and others which involve the refurbishment of existing facilities. It’s also possible to sign up for an online newsletter and download the various bid documents.
