In considering the theme of risk, we widened our scope to hundreds of years in the future. We considered the threat of climate change to the city of Glasgow and imagined the Clyde overflowing into the urban landscape. Here we envision Glasgow built anew above the deluge, with efforts made to delve into the murky depths and reclaim these artefacts, hauling them upwards in a feat of industrial, logistical might. The architecture of the Clydesdale Paint and Oil Works attests to the pride invested in the bricks and mortar, an industry made obsolete by economic change. Here we reframe these facades and invite fresh, post-flood engagement.
