St Peter's Seminary to be preserved as 'modernist ruin'

An abandoned brutalist building in western Scotland is to be preserved as the first ever "modernist ruin".

Built in the 1960s, St Peter's Seminary in Cardross was described as a masterpiece of architecture and was awarded the prestigious Riba gold medal and given Grade A listed status.

But 50 years on the building is unrecognisable.
