Planet Earth 27: The Armadillo – Glasgow


The Scottish Development Agency first supported the construction of an exhibition centre in Glasgow in 1979. A site at the former Queen’s Dock on the north bank of the Clyde at Finnieston, which had closed to navigation in 1969, was selected. Land reclamation works started in 1982 using rubble from the demolished St Enoch railway station. The construction of the SECC buildings began on the site in 1983.

In 1995, construction began on a new building — the Clyde Auditorium — to become part of the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) complex. Designed by award-winning architect Sir Norman Foster and often called “the armadillo” by Glaswegians, this new 3,000 capacity building was completed in 1997.
