Placed 4th in the Placebook vote of favourite buildings by BDP
The titanium-clad Glasgow Science Centre is one BDP's most photogenic buildings and has won accolades from a RIBA Award for Architecture to being named Scotland's Best Family Attraction. Local taxi driver Arthur Henighen never tires of going there or recommending it:
As a 61 year old Glasgow cab driver who was born 300 yards away from the centre, I remember what it used to look like in the 1950s.
Now the Govan area has been enhanced by the wonderfully designed buildings.
I take my grandchildren regularly, and as a taxi driver I recommend the Glasgow Science Centre to Glaswegians and visitors.
