There are more and more resources on Brutalist architecture showing up on the web, including many videos of the modern ruin that is St. Peter’s Seminary at Cardross. I have featured Murray Grigor’s rare and beautiful short film, Space and Light (1972), on the right, which shows the original condition of the building before it fell into ruin. The background image is of the Keller Fountain in Portland, OR, a Brutalist fountain which I grew up swimming in. Below are some additional resources on Brutalism on the web.
A good source for images of Brutalism is the Fuck Yeah Brutalism site on Tumblr.
A short (2:55) BBC report on St. Peter’s Seminary. Note: If you click on the video links below, they will open a new pop-up light box so you don’t have to leave the site.
A short 10 minute film about St. Peter’s Seminary by NVA, the group that is repurposing it as an art venue that incorporates the ruin into its use.
A sad update on St. Peter’s Seminary: In June of 2018 the charity NVA announced that they were ceasing operations, including the plans to save and repurpose St. Peter’s due to budget cuts in the U.K. The fate of the ultimate building is now unknown.
In addition to Paula K. Kamenish’s excellent Mamas of Dada: Women of the European Avant-Garde, below are some links on Francis Picaba and Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven.
