Photographer's Note

One of the more exciting pieces of modern architecture in Scotland is Glasgow's Riverside Museum which opened in 2011 and which now houses the collection from the previous Glasgow Museum of Transport.

The new Riverside Museum building was designed by Zaha Hadid Architects and engineers Buro Happold and is built on a steel framework with metal deckings and clad in zinc. The huge front entrance of the building is faced in smoked glass as you can see here, looking onto the River Clyde and the berth of the Tall Ship. The rest of the structure follows interesting but beautifully simple curves as in this picture. You can see a bird's eye view of the building if you click on Map:view.

And here is a photograph of just one exhibit within the museum of transport - a reconstruction of a typical street scene from the 1920s.
