Strathclyde students rally behind threatened Architecture Building
The University of Strathclyde Department of Architecture Official Student Society, A@131, have announced that they are to host a celebration of the purpose built school on 26 March.

During the evening artist Charles Anderson will deliver a talk on his work as a mural designer and sculptor, notably an in-situ concrete wall sculpture, before John Cunningham and Professor Frank Walker, the original project architects, take to the floor to reminisce about the buildings genesis.

The B-listed purpose built school, completed in 1967, is considered by the society to be the best post-war building on the Strathclyde campus - but its future is currently in doubt with the department set to vacate the property at the end of the year.
