Redefining Brutalism- study trip to Glasgow

Academie van Bouwkunst, P4 studio students, have just completed a study trip to Glasgow led by Jo Barnett. Our primary purpose was to visit the fabulous ruin that is St Peters Seminary by Gillespie Kidd and Coia. This will be the site of the students proposed project.

This image, also from our trip, shows the entry into St Brides in East Kilbride another of GK&C’s works near Glasgow which is currently very much a functioning building.

Big thank you to Richard Proudly and Dennis Meijerink for their informative in-put at the start of the project, and to Anne Koenig from Berlin who joined our trip, bringing with her a valuable wider European outlook. Also indebted to the Mackintosh School of Art for their fantastic support during our whole stay.
