"Method of this work: literary montage. I have nothing to say only to show" --Walter Benjamin

St Peter’s Seminary, Cardross, an important work of 1960s Brutalist architecture, has been abandoned since the early 1980s and is now a modern ruin. Note the overgrowth, still modest here, but another trope of horticultural horror which I find so fascinating again today.
