Richard Horden Architects were awarded first prize for their ‘Wing Tower’ but
controversially the project was essentially taken over by BDP Architects, Glasgow.
The Glasgow Tower brief required a 100 metre high tower. The Tower was to include a viewing platform, restaurant and exhibition space. Richard Horden worked with aeronautical engineer Peter Heppel, to design a vertical wing that rotated with the wind direction. Being visible for miles around, it allows Glaswegians to tell which way the wind is blowing! The Glasgow Tower was the first of its kind to rotate to reduce the aerodynamic forces on the structure.

Richard Horden - Background on the Architect
image from BDP Architects
Richard Horden is an English architect and yachtsman. Richard became well-known in the Eighties for light simple buildings that used yacht technology and yacht iconology. His modern rectilinear buildings were part of the Hi-Tech style that swept England, key architects being Richard Rogers, Norman Foster and Chris Wilkinson.
Richard Horden Architects tried to transfer the elegance of sailing and the beauty and technology of the modern aircraft into architecture, in a way reminiscent of architect Le Corbusier's extolling of the modern technology of cars and planes. However, unlike Le Corbusier, Richard aimed for light prefabricated buildings.
