Deep in the heart of the Scottish woodlands on the outskirts of Glasgow lies a fallen concrete space-ship. Laying uninhabited for thirty years; it has become a symbol for a fallen post-war architectural era, as well as the impact that time can have on the built environment. 

Built by Gillespie, Kidd and Coia in 1966 as a homage to Le Corbusier and once home to almost 100 trainee Roman catholic priests, St.Peter’s seminary rapidly fell into a state of disrepair due to significant water entry and maintenance difficulties after its completion. The wild, rugged nature of the Scottish wilderness so close to its capital seemed the perfect backdrop for such an effigy to Corbusier; who believed wholly that the guidelines for all architectural planning lied within a deep respect for the natural world.
