Hydro nearing completion

16 Jul 2013

Piece by piece, Glasgow's £125 million entertainment venue on the banks of the Clyde is nearing completion.

One hundred out of 140 foil pillows have now been installed on the building.

It will be one of the city's most striking buildings, where the world's top music performers will entertain thousands of fans.

And now engineers are putting some of the final touches to the building -including layers of external giant inflated 'foil pillows'.

The hi-tech external cladding on the gigantic circular-shaped structure will allow the building to shimmer in 12.8million different colours.

Hydro bosses said the venue's "unique" exterior has been made possible by using a special film, originally developed by Nasa for the space industry.
