– the website accompanying the Scottish Brutalism research project  is now live.

Despite growing popular interest in – and heritage recognition of – Brutalism, many good buildings continue to face demolition or architecturally damaging alteration. This is, for too many Brutalist post-war buildings, the last moment in which it is possible to record them in anything close to their original state. For many of the best it is already too late. accompanies and acts as a means of dissemination for the Scottish Brutalism research project, which aims to map, document and critically assess Brutalist architecture across Strathclyde.

For a detailed introduction to the project, please refer to the Home and Project pages.

I would welcome your thoughts on both the website and the project. Comments and suggestions will be publicly viewable if made on the Interact page, which I would encourage you to use. However, if you would prefer to offer feedback in confidence, please use the Contact page.
