On the run up to the Stirling Prize, 2016, The Architect's Journal takes a look into the six nominated buildings, with interviews from the architects.
A trio of gridded glass blocks forms this new campus for a Glasgow college, which contains facilities for nautical and engineering students, including a replica of a ship's engine room.
Edinburgh firms Michael Laird Architects and Reiach and Hall Architects designed the £228 million Riverside Campus for the City of Glasgow College, which formed when the city's Central, Metropolitan and Nautical Colleges merged into a single institution in 2010.
The Riverside Campus is located beside the River Clyde. It is the first of two new campuses for the college, which will bring together services that previously operated across 12 separate sites.
"Located at the edge of a major crossing of the River Clyde, the site marks a gateway in the city and projects the college's importance as a civic institution as well as creating a new memorable landmark on the Glasgow skyline," said the architects.
