YPTDP workshop Glasgow

YPTDP workshop Glasgow

21 December 2016

Report by Petr Salak, activity group leader YPTDP

 

The Young Professionals’ Think Deep Programme workshop organised by ISOCARP, ITACUS, Think Deep UK and the City of Glasgow on “Rethinking the Clyde Waterfront”, held in Glasgow between 23-28 October 2016, was an inspiring experience and remarkable example of what a cross disciplinary design approach can bring to our cities.

Professionals in urban planning, architects, tunnellers, geologists, civil and geotechnical engineers and city officials came together to research, discuss and design multiple solutions for the brownfields redevelopment scheme. The results of the workshop are innovative, environmental friendly, comprehensive and push boundaries.

 
This workshop was the first one of this nature and it should be recognised that this requires courage from all participants and most certainly from the City of Glasgow, as they financially supported this workshop in the first place. Well done for being the first and leading by example.
 
There is no doubt that the City of Glasgow will benefit from over 1,000 hours of work by a team of 20 international professionals supported by three tutors and representatives from both ISOCARP and ITACUS.
