The awards – supported by the late Andrew Doolan’s family and the Scottish Government – are recognised as one of the most prestigious architectural prizes in the UK and one of the most significant in Europe.

The regeneration project in Laurieston is being delivered through an innovative partnership involving Glasgow City Council’s special purpose regeneration vehicle Transforming Communities: Glasgow, New Gorbals Housing Association, and developer Urban Union.

Craig Kidd of Urban Union said: “Our vision is to provide quality housing for the people of Laurieston, building not just homes, but communities and deliver a new world-class city quarter.
