On Thursday night I was at the Lighthouse to hear the decision on the redesign of George Square. It's the main civic square in Glasgow, I work two streets away from it and walk through it every morning. A number of new designs had been tendered to a poor response from the general public, and luckily these were all rejected in favour of a postponement and a bit of a rethink. A mocked-up "option 7" currently doing the rounds harks back to the historic layout of the square, which is more reflective of Glasgow's motto, "dear green place". For now, the square remains the same as it's been since I first visited the city in the mid-90s.
