Foster + Partners just unveiled their latest achievement: the SSE Hydro. It’s not a dam or a submarine – It’s Scotland’s largest purpose-built public event arena, and it will see some of the world’s biggest musicians and acts in the coming years. Built on the site of the former Queen’s Dock, SSE Hydro is the only UK venue of its scale built specifically for concerts. It also features lightweight, translucent wall panels, and natural ventilation system to reduce its energy demand. “Its design strengthens connections to the River Clyde and will be central to the Queen’s Dock redevelopment – its series of new public spaces will bring the riverfront to life and open it up for all to enjoy,” say Foster + Partners.
