The Hydro

Glasgow’s Space-Ace Arena
Like a gleaming, illuminated spaceship that’s come in for a slightly tipsy landing, SSE Hydro—Glasgow’s futuristic new concert, conference and event venue—was designed by no less than Sir Norman Foster. When it opened on September 30, 2013 with a concert by Rod Stewart, 12,000 fans got the first chance to appreciate the arena’s clear sightlines and dazzling acoustics. They also got to marvel, close up, at the pneumatic translucent cushions of the building’s exterior, made of a material originally developed for the space industry.
