Clydebank Community Sports Hub
Casting connections

A new sports hub has brought world-class facilities to an important Glasgow regeneration area. We helped architects MKA connect it with the community.

Armed with kits of building-block shapes, we asked local schoolchildren to create their own images of sport and Clydebank lore. These would become part of decorative panels which everyone could see and touch on their way in and out of the centre.

We were astonished by the kids’ creativity. Radiating a real sense of fun, their 90 individual tiles were put together and cast in concrete at different depths. The changing shapes bring energy, warmth and humour to this new community meeting place.
