Disappearing Glasgow is the culmination of a 7 year project by artist Chris Leslie to document the destruction of the Glasgow communities built to a modernist vision of the future in the 1950s and 60s. Featuring over 100 beautiful and moving full colour images, and seven short essays by by leading commentators, the book is a stunning eulogy to the death of both an architectural ideal and a number of prominent Glasgow communities. Chris will be giving a fascinating, fully-illustrated talk.
