Best Building in Scotland : Doolan Prize

Hutchesontown C was the name given to a Comprehensive Development Area (CDA) of an area of Hutchesontown, a district in the city of Glasgow, Scotland. Its centrepiece were two 20-storey slab blocks at 16-32 Queen Elizabeth Square, designed by Sir Basil Spence and containing 400 homes. Acclaimed by architects and modernists, the flats became riddled with damp and infestations, which could not be cured even with a major renovation in the late 1980s. They were demolished in 1993, killing a spectator in the process. Hutchesontown C was commissioned in 1959, with Spence receiving assistance from a project architect, Charles Robertson. Spence and Robertson, partly inspired by Le Corbusier’s giant maisonette blocks in Marseille, designed two “colossal, rugged 20-storey slabs” featuring inset communal balconies. In revealing the design, Spence said to the Glasgow Corporation’s Housing Committee that “on Tuesdays, when all the washing’s out, it’ll be like a great ship in full sail”, a reference to Glasgow’s shipbuilding heritage. He hoped to revive working-class life of the tenement back green. His remarks helped break down resistance to tall blocks among the councillors.
