At first sight the ruins pictured here look as if they may have been a housing project of some sort and in a way that would be a correct assumption. Yet the ruins are of St Peter's Seminary, a Roman Catholic Institution which was finally abandoned in the 1980s.
Situated near Cardross, Argyll and Bute in Scotland the seminary represents a building of world significance architecurally. Yet no one quite seems to know what to do with it and its condition continues to deteriorate day by day. For those adherents of the brutalist style it must surely be enough to make them weep in to their concrete mixers.
