Exhibition of buildings for the 21st century

Developing knowledge and understanding of the development of the Clyde waterfront, learners will critically reflect on the work of the designers by analysing a variety of buildings used for retail, leisure, business and other purposes using a variety of media. Working in groups, they will look at design and purpose, and compare and contrast these buildings with the ones in their local environment. They will produce displays of these new buildings using a variety of media for an exhibition.
