18 September 2021 (10am; 105 mins) Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival The
Glasgow Institute of Architects (GIA) is leading ‘Cone on the Cop’ a series of
integrated walks, jogs and cycle routes surrounding the COP26 campus. The
Clyde Tidal Walk is one of these routes and is focused on a loop around the
Clyde spanning from the pedestrian Clyde Tunnel in the West to St Andrew’s
suspension bridge in Glasgow Green. The purpose of the walk is to link a
series of historical and sustainable points of architectural interest however
to also bring awareness of rising water levels as a result of global warming.
Various viewpoints are integrated into the walk where the rising water levels
can be considered in the context of the past, the present and the future.
Glasgow City Council will make available historical images from the past while
students from Strathclyde University School of Architecture are considering
how parts of Glasgow may appear if water levels continue to rise. A map will
help individuals navigate the route however as part of Doors Open Day members
of the GIA will join members of the public for a guided walk. The walk will
focus on the North bank of the Clyde from the Transport Museum to Glasgow
Green. Meeting point: 100 Pointhouse Rd, Partick. Facilities Limited Access
