Designed by award-winning architect Sir Norman Foster under a very-tight budget and often called “the armadillo” by Glaswegians, this 3,000 seater building was completed in 1997. The Glasgow SECC takes a flat sheet material and employs it to clad a series of framed “╦ťhulls’, which wrap around the disparate elements, including the auditorium fly-tower. These overlapping, aluminium-clad shells – reflective by day and floodlit at night – create a distinctive profile on the skyline.
