Glasgowâ€™s Commonwealth Arena, incorporating the Indoor Sports Arena & Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, is the only major new sports facility planned to be used as part of the 2014 Commonwealth Games. The complex is also designed for its legacy use as both a centre for sporting excellence, providing a local, regional and national training centre and competition venue, and as a community sports facility.
The talk by Gordon McGhie, Director of Glasgow Architects 3DReid, explains the design development of this unique facility, its impact on the East End of Glasgow and the challenges of creating and constructing a facility which both meets the requirements for Commonwealth Games events and is suitable for intense everyday use by a wide range of participants, spectators and sporting bodies.
