File documents an unsuccessful competition entry for the River Clyde Study & Ideas Competition, organised by the City of Glasgow, Scotland, for the rehabilitation of sections of the river bank. Cedric Price's entry proposed the conversion of existing coal yards and abandoned docks with a "metropolitan farm" including a food-growing complex, fish and hydroponic farms, and marketing facilities, along with a new public river transportation system. An existing conditions survey and a map show the docks and areas along the River Clyde. Design development drawings of diagrams and charts explore the various activities and the accommodation of each activity within the design limitations associated with it. Components of the plan are organized by activity type, location, and the amount of time required per activity. The activities shown include shopping, observation, gardening, employment, sports, and retraining. Other components of the plan are shown in detail: housing, the city farm, research center, a ferry and ferry stop, and a floating jungle. A diagram plots the travel time from the project area to various locations within Glascow. A public survey card monitors the project. One plan compares the size of this project site with other sites including that of Abu Dhabi Breakwater (AP144.S2.D94). Reprographic copies show regional relevance, and explore "test-bed" areas for activities such as forestry and agriculture.
