Riverside Museum, Glasgow

Zaha Hadid’s Riverside Museum is a landmark on the edge of the Clyde, and home to Glasgow’s Transport collection. It makes a big impression on the river frontage and its dynamic appearance is certainly getting a reaction. I’ve enjoyed photographing the building as preparations were made to open the doors to the public and have revisited at times…Situated where the River Kelvin meets the Clyde, on a barren former industrial site offering great vantage points,  it seems to be drawing people out to explore new parts of the city and the rivers edge, which has got to be a good thing. With a new ferry link operating across the river to Govan,  The Riverside Museum’s lasting success lies in its  ability to encourage regeneration and breathe new life to its surroundings and across the water to Govan, a neighbourhood where Glasgow’s shipbuilding pride was originally built.
