    This place has been explored millions of times, and by better photographers than me.
    But another report doesn't hurt does it?

    Besides, after having been there, I want to pay my own photographic tribute to the place, it deserves it and so much more...

    For the history part, though important, especially for a building like this, others before me have already done the job quite nicely, so as a reminder:


    Capn Polyester's

    And of course, Hidden Glasgow

    As Gorecki said wrote in her report 'a beautiful day in glasgow, what else to do than to visit some brutal concrete architecture' :

    1. from the entrance

    2.The Altar, being reconverted into a place of poetry by my friend Morgan

    3. the teaching block more decayed than ever...
    (took me some time to be sure it actually was a teaching block...


    5. From above




    9. If I try very hard I will become a priest and save the building




    13. I had the sudden feeling of swimming my wy through the titanic




    17. C'mon I'm sure the culprit is in the audience

    After my visit I really think the building isn't as "brutal" as its said to be. If you consider architecture as the art of adapting buildings to people, then the outside isn't that important (and it was one of LeCorbusier's fundamental ideas). This building seems to call for contemplation and reflection (pity it doesn't work with the neds).
    I read somewhere that the building made the most of the particular scottish light and it seems to be quite true (but it's hard to tell since all the partitions are missing...)

    Thanks for looking
