Buildings at risk on Scottish list

The Scottish Civic Trust has produced its latest Buildings at Risk Register, detailing some of the 1,300 'architectural gems' threatened with demolition.

Produced with the support of the Scottish Executive, the document aims to highlight the plight of these buildings and encourage developers and architects to find new uses for them.

This year's line-up includes James and Robert Adam's Grade A-listed Caldwell House in East Renfewshire, John Thomas Rochead's Milburn Free Church in Renton, also Grade A-listed, and Neil Duff 's Art Deco La Scala Cinema in Helensburgh.

The register was launched at Page & Park Architects' Glasgow Maggie's Centre, itself a rescue venture, converted from the city's Gatehouse building after 10 years in the register.

Speaking at the event, Scotland's minister for tourism and culture Frank McAveety said: 'The sustainable development of our built heritage not only delivers social benefits, it also makes sense for our economy.'
