The Kelpies, Falkirk

Arka took part in a competition to develop an architectural strategy surrounding celebrated sculptor Andy Scott's forthcoming Kelpiehead sculptures in Falkirk. These massive structures will be centrally located within sight of other globally significant Scottish engineering marvels: The Forth Rail Bridge & Falkirk Wheel.

Arka’s vision for The Kelpies would see the site become an emotive hub celebrating the insight and technical ability of Scotland’s thinkers: Local heritage and history presented in an engaging environment born from the intrinsic combination of art, engineering and architecture.
