Glasgow's George Square to get makeover

A design competition is to be held later this year for Glasgow's George Square, which will receive a £15m revamp to create a new day and night public space that supports creativity. The BBC's story at http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-19585290 provides an interesting reminder that the Square began life as a garden with trees, lawns and fences. Take a look at the books on public space in GSA Library at shelfmark 711.55 if you fancy entering the competition and are looking for ideas!
