St Peter’s College, Cardross

A fascinating piece on ‘the spaceship’, the remarkable seminary, designed after Le Corbusier in the 1960s by architects Isi Metzstein and Andrew MacMillan. Brian Dillon visits the now derelict structure for the Guardian, 14th February. See also an older article from Jonathan Glancey in the Guardian, which discusses in passing the building’s sudden obsolescence in post-Council Catholic Scotland.

The film director Murray Grigor filmed the interior in 1972 and has revisited it to remake his original film; it is to be screened later this year.
