Road flats, Glasgow
Built in 1965, this
32-storey housing development, designed by architect Sam Brunton,
was once the tallest in Europe - a symbol of the optimism invested
in a high-rise future. Yet by 1980 mounting problems had resulted
in two of the blocks being condemned as unfit for human habitation.
In March 2005 the council announced plans to demolish them and
redevelop the area with low-rise houses.
