Diane Watters will present an illustrated talk which looks at the story of an architectural failure which morphed into a tragic modernist myth.

For the past three decades, the ruin of St Peter's College has sat, crumbling, graffiti snaking across its walls and nature reclaiming its concrete. It has gained a mythical, cult-like status among architects, preservationists and artists. St Peter's fulfilled its original role as a seminary from 1966 to 1979. Now in 2017, St Peter's is renewed as a cultural space, the site of NVA’s globally publicised event 'Hinterland' and soon to be refurbished in a multi-million pound re-development. Diane Watters will present an illustrated talk which looks at the story of an architectural failure which morphed into a tragic modernist myth, and will delivers an exploration of how one of Scotland's most singular buildings became one of its most troubled - and most celebrated.
