Townhead Demolition

Demolition work in progress beside the Royal College of Science and Technology in 1964, just before it became the University of Strathclyde. Two new buildings were erected on the site.

The Architecture Building was completed in 1967 for the Department of Architecture and Building Science. The architects were Frank Fielden & Associates of whom the principal, Frank Fielden, was then the Professor of Architecture at the University of Strathclyde. In 2004 the Department has around fifty staff and 400 students and the building accommodates lecture rooms, design studios, a reference library and three state-of-the-art computer laboratories.

The Colville Building, also completed in 1967, commemorates the long association of the University's predecessor institutions with steelmakers Colvilles. It houses the Department of Physics and the Department of Civil Engineering.
