The Armadillo
The 'Armadillo' was built on the site of the old Queen's dock.The aluminium clad shells reflect by day and are floodlit by night. It definitely creates a distinctive profile on the Glasgow skyline. I have been told that the common armadillo has nine bands, but I would have to go back and check that the build does too!
