Vision for Kirkintilloch Voted Winner of the Future Town Design Competition 2019

A design for Kirkintilloch has been named the winner of the FutureTown Design Competition after securing more than half of the public votes for its “Giant Phone Box” project.

Entries were shortlisted by an expert panel composed of Scotland’s Towns Partnership and Threesixty Architecture, and the public vote took place online over ‘Scotland’s Towns Week’ 18th - 24th November.

The entrant from Kirkintilloch will now be invited to showcase the project at the annual Towns Tea Party event to an audience of policy-makers and those from across sectors involved in supporting towns.

Other shortlisted design entries included visions for Alloa, Crail, Castle Terrace Edinburgh, Dennistoun Glasgow, Inverness, and Milngavie.
