"The building design amplifies the spirit of the Institute and delivers a wellbeing-focused, articulated workspace rich in sustainable and environmental responses. Natural strategies for daylight and ventilation are optimised in pursuit of a human-centred response to workspace in the city." Scottish Design Awards website

This state of the art building is named after Clarice Pears, who was born and raised in Glasgow, and the Pears Foundation - founded and run by Clarice’s three sons, Mark, Trevor and David - has donated £5 million to the cost of construction.
