This Scar Will Never Heal

This project is about how the M8 motorway severed the city of Glasgow in half and how the construction of it in the 1970s displaced communities and demolished historic buildings in the process. ‘This Scar Will Never Heal’ (a quote from a demonstration at the time) serves as a reminder of the lasting destructive impact the motorway has had on Glasgow. The last image shows an idea that unfortunately never came to be.
