Scottish 'masterpiece' is no longer there

  • Comment

Regarding the news item on the Basil Spence Archive (AJ 24.2.05), while I welcome this resource as a valuable record of his contribution to post-war British architecture, I would like to point out, just in case any fans of Scottish Modern architecture are thinking of travelling north to see this landmark work, that the 'masterpiece' referred to in the article, Queen Elizabeth Square, was demolished several years ago and the area is currently being redeveloped as part of Piers Gough's masterplan for the redevelopment of Glasgow's Gorbals area.
