09 Jun Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility
Rising from the ashes of the former Ravenscraig Steelworks site, the Ravenscraig Sports Facility is a state-of-the-art amenity, which will serve the community and provide a training ground for competitive athletes in Scotland. The brownfield site has been transformed by the undulating architectural design created by architects BuroHappold and Populous. The functional stepped profile of the building enabled the inclusion of north-facing rooflights and fully glazed end walls to provide daylight into the spaces below. I was approached by North Lanarkshire Council to photograph the facility both internally and externally, prior to its opening.
