The SEC the armadillo was designed by architects Foster and Partners, construction of the 3,000 seat venue started in September 1995, and was completed in August 2000, by which time it had earned its affectionate nickname, due to the similarity of its shape to that of the animal of the same name.Many comparisons have been made with the Sydney Opera House, although this was not the architects' inspiration for the design, which was in fact an interlocking series of ship's hulls, in reference to the Clyde's shipbuilding heritage.The building has become one of the most recognisable on Clydeside and an iconic image of Glasgow.
This colourful and vibrant fine art print illustration is a wonderful gift for those who likes to bring a lot of colour and warmth to their home, office or studio. Also it is a great and original souvenir for those who enjoy collecting art to hang on their walls.
