Over the years, the Royal Concert Hall steps have been the focal point of rallies, demonstrations and displays.
Now the steps themselves are the in the public eye after plans emerged to demolish the Royal Concert Hall entrance to make place for a glass atrium, alongside the £400 million revamp to Buchanan Galleries.
Since this information was released, over 13,000 people have pledged their support in an online petition asking Glasgow City Council to reverse the plans.
On Sunday afternoon, more than 200 turned up against to the 'Save the Steps' protest against the plans in a bid to change the council's view.
Here's some of the best social media action from the event:
A recent poll from STV found that 88% of people were against the demolition:
Plans to replace the Concert Hall steps with a new entrance atrium to the shopping centre were submitted by developers Land Securities late last year.
Buchanan Galleries would house 100 shops, a new ten-screen cinema and 25 restaurants.
They say the plans will "improve access to the Concert Hall and the shopping centre".
If the plans get the green light, construction would begin in spring and scheduled to be completed in early 2016.
A report submitted alongside the plans states: "We are of the view that the existing steps do not provide any aesthetic benefit to the city centre, and is of little townscape value."
A Glasgow City Council spokesperson confirmed 241 objections had been acknowledged.
The spokesperson added: "The application will be considered at a committee meeting in due course."
