Glasgow has an ever-changing skyline, is this a sign of a vibrant city?
Glasgow is a city which never sleeps! A cultural and economic hub with an ever-changing skyline; but is this constant evolution the sign of an exciting city, or is Glasgow losing the unique historic built environment at the heart of its soul? Our panel of speakers discussed the pros and cons of becoming a modern metropolis, and the challenges faced when incorporating the old with the new.
About The City Talks: Glasgow City Heritage Trust hold a series of quarterly events called ‘The City Talks’. As opposed to the more traditional format of our lecture series, The City Talks are two-way debates between a specially selected panel of experts and the audience. This debate was held on 2nd November 2016 at Cottiers Theatre in the West End.
