‘An Underwater Glasgow’ by Group

A thriving modern-day city, Glasgow provides an urban habitat for over 600,000 people. Originally brought together by the community’s shared use of the River Clyde, the city supported Scotland’s largest shipbuilding industry. However, due to the growing climate crisis, the life giver of the city will soon become the life taker – caused by the rising river levels, parts of the city will be drowned in the next 30 years. To prevent this, we are collaborating to highlight to the public the impending flooding that will destroy most of the city. Through mapping and investigating the climate emergency we hope to make a striking statement using installations along the riverside.
