Glorious glasshouses

Glorious GlasshousesThis is the roof of the Winter Gardens at the People’s Palace, Glasgow.  A beautiful structure… look up!  Glasgow is fortunate to have many elegant glasshouses, offering a wonderful setting to relax and enjoy the sun (or give you shelter on a day of less pleasant weather).  I love the shadows and shapes created by the roof beams.

Hydro roofwork

Passed “The Hydro” in progress and could not resist a photo of the workers on the roof. This is Scotland’s newest venue, to be used for the 2014 Commonwealth Games and opening for music and events later this year.  There is more information on this building on the SECC website.  I wonder what nickname this building may get, next to the Armadillo, and near to the Squinty bridge?
