The Hidden Gardens in Glasgow

The Hidden Gardens – are located on a 5000 m2 large former industrial site on Glasgow south-side.

The Hidden Gardens are an example of how to integrate brown fields, which the old industries have left behind, into the urban fabric. Design and architecture of the complex also bear witness to the way how the local population can be included in the planning process.
