Professor Evans will work with planners, the design community, and city partners to make sure liveability is improved in housing, business, environment, transport, and place connectivity in Glasgow.
Evans currently works as Professor of Urbanism and Landscape at the Glasgow School of Art's Mackintosh School of Architecture and his previous endeavours include playing a leading role in Glasgow’s Public Realm Strategy (1995) and transforming the public realm of Grainger Town in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
He has also led teams to victory in international competitions including the expansion of the City of Moscow (2013) and the transformation of the River Moscow (2014).
"It is characteristic of Glasgow to look forward and think creatively about the ways the city works for people," says Professor Brian Evans.
"We should think about the design of Glasgow as an international city, a metropolitan city and, most importantly, as the everyday city of residents, businesses, and visitors and I'm honoured to be asked to play a role and to take a strategic view on place, design, and the city."
