Randak looks at Glasgow’s history

Randak Design has created an installation and a book for land registry authority Registers of Scotland.

Appointed in December 2008, the consultancy won a credentials pitch and was briefed to express how land registry has changed and increase public awareness of what the organisation does.

The project was also instructed by Scotland’s Year of Homecoming celebrations, a programme of cultural events, which mark Glasgow as a departure point for emigrants.

Registers of Scotland is responsible for compiling and maintaining registers relating to property and other legal documents.

An installation, Foundation Glasgow, has been created by the consultancy at the Registers of Scotland headquarters in Glasgow. It incorporates a ceiling-to-floor projection, detailing prehistoric Glasgow, the history of the city and its future, including the Commonwealth Games 2014. 

Lin Gibbon, creative director at Randak Design, says, ‘People walk around a gantry and look down on the animation. It’s map-based, lasts 14 minutes and gives a unique vision of the city.’

A book (pictured) takes the same evolutionary concept and maps out Glasgow’s history and future, detailing land use in the city.
