The Bridge Arts Centre is a new building created to literally ‘bridge the gap’ between a 1960’s swimming pool and the new John Wheatley college in Easterhouse. The venue includes a 210 seat theatre and workshop space, a recording studio, a café, a library and meeting rooms. The space which the building now occupies was long used as a shortcut by local people, so the architects developed the idea of a ‘covered street’ to permit the free flow of pedestrians through the space, but with enough facilities to tempt them to linger and find out what is going on. The results have been impressive. The library has gone from being one of the bottom five in Glasgow to being one of the top two in the city.
