Administrative / Biographical History

Work on Glasgow's bid to become the UK City of Architecture and Design began sometime in 1993 with support being solicited from local authorities, development agencies, local interest and amenity groups, local universities and colleges, architects and other professionals, housing associations and community councils. Competition for the title was fierce with 17 cities bidding including Edinburgh. In November 1994 it was announced that Glasgow had been successful in their bid. The Glasgow 1999 Festival Co Ltd was formed in 1995 with charitable status with Deyan Sudjic being appointed as Festival Director.
