Glasgow: Model City is an exhibition of two three dimensional representations of the city. The exhibition displays architectural models in both lo-tech and hi-tech forms exhibited together for the first time;
Lo-Tech: A wooden hand built physical model of Glasgow City centre once used by Glasgow City Council Planning Department as a tool to consider new developments within the context of the city. The model was decommissioned almost twenty years ago and was stored at the Glasgow Museum Resource Centre, Nitshill. The model has not been altered or added to since being put into storage and therefore represents a snapshot of Glasgow’s urban form in the late 1990s.
Hi-Tech: Glasgow Urban Model is a 3D digital representation of the City Centre and River Clyde corridor which succeeded the physical model as the preferred planning tool. The model can be viewed online in two versions; Photorealistic detail or Block detail.
