Boxing Day 2012’s destruction of Springburn Public Halls and the granting of planning permission in Autumn 2013 to demolish the Grade A listed Gartloch Asylum has prompted Chris Stewart to highlight North Glasgow, a land far and away. Read about the decline of Springburn from Locomotive City to the land that time forgot with many a pantomime reference in this quarter’s edition of Scottish Architecture and Design publication Urban Realm.
The article can be found on pages 20 to 25 culminating in a diminishing ray of light from the efforts of Glasgow City Council with the hope of a forthcoming ideas competition from the Glasgow Institute of Architects.
