The College building was designed by Wylie Shanks Architects in 1964.

"The building is located in one of the most prominent positions in Glasgow and can be seen from most points of the city.
Built on a hill, the college had very unusual roof elements with a Corbusier feel that was lost to the public on the street."

"Can I go on to the roof of your building please?" .. I said to the Irish man.

"Yes, yes you can. Today you are insured to!
I get 1000's of people a year asking me to get up, mostly photographers, but I can't let them for insurance purposes, but today young lass, is your lucky day"

Yasss get in there!!

I've passed this building dozens of times and always gazed up at the roof terrace, which pays homage to homage to my all time hero Le Corbusier's Unite d'Habitation building in Marseilles.
It's so brutalist, concrete, white, love it!
AND i'm sure Taggart has been on the roof too.
There's been a murderrrrrrr :D




Looking down on to George Square.






This is the smaller college buildiing, again with Corbusian style roof terrace.





And added bonus, the filming of the new Halle Berry movie, where they turned the streets of Glasgow into USA. :gay
