Glasgow 'Smell Map'

Edinburgh-based designer Kate McLean has created a most unusual map of the city that portrays its scents, rather than its street pattern. Glasgow joins a number of cities around the world that Kate has 'mapped' in this way; for her and the residents and visitors she has interviewed, Glasgow 'smells of diesel, wet moss and Lorne sausage'. There's a tantalising glimpse of the Glasgow map on Kate's website, but the full thing can be viewed at the Glasgow Science Centre until September 16th.
