Scents of Glasgow 2012

Glasgow’s scents are of movement, of reinvention, of rebuilding, of regeneration. A city of renewal. Researched with contributions from author Michael Meighan (author of “Glasgow Smells” and “Glasgow Smells Better”) as well as commuters, residents, workers, tourists, the Glasgow City council.

As an interactive exhibition the map is designed with bottled smells, blank maps of the city and coloured dots to designate new sites of smell interest.
