AA Ground Lab has partnered with the Common Wealth Think Tank in imagining the implementation of Green New Deal policies in Glasgow in 2030. The project envisions a future for Glasgow in three scales:

CITY SCALE
New networks of green and blue infrastructure are proposed for flood resilience, while bringing people closer to nature and transitioning to alternative energies.

STREET SCALE
‘Away with the Cars’ policies increase the space for pedestrians, public transport, green infrastructure and green community business.

TENEMENT SCALE
retrofitting ensures that social housing has proper insulation and energy saving mechanisms to improve inhabitants’ health, and introduces shared communal facilities for maintenance, food production and community leisure.

Organisation Information:

AA Ground Lab is a design laboratory based at the Architectural Association in London.
