The poorly designed new housing soon became uninhabitable and were themselves pulled down and replaced. This has been funded in partnership between the city council and housing associations.
  • Subject:

    Citizenship and Modern Studies


    Politics and Government: The Democratic and Electoral Processes

Ideas for use in class
  • Students could look at local examples of town planning. Housing and town planning could link well with geography topics. The Gorbals example could provide a good basis for cross curriular study looking at the design issues encountered with system built high rise schemes.
