Clydebank Canopy – RIAS competition – submission for cre8architecture

Our response to the Clyde Rebuilt / RIAS Competition brief was to extract a shape from Clydebank’s ship-building heritage and abstract it into a dynamic new form that energises the canal.

A myriad of interpretations exist … flower petals, leaves, feathers, propellers, vertebrae – we see a beautiful sculptural form that glides across water.

The canopy takes the ship propeller as an initial point of reference and abstracts the form through sinuous lines to reflect motion, rotation and cover. The apparent complexity of the canopy belies the simplicity of the repeated form.
