Designed by Gareth Hoskins architects, The Bridge is an award winning facility that joins together, Glasgow Life Swimming Pool, Library and Real Learning Centre, Glasgow Kelvin College and Platform – Glasgow’s most unique venue for the arts.  Platform is a creative hub for artists with a residency programme and exhibition opportunities.
