Rubbish idea for Milton Church
August 28 2009
Colston Milton Parish Church in north Glasgow is pioneering this waste not want not technique, being as it is composed entirely of refuse, including beer cans, tyres and shipping containers.
Already recipient of £40k from the public purse, the church has been designed by architect Lee Ivett to both reduce environmental impact and cost. A traditional building approach would have cost millions prompting the congregation to adopt the radical construction technique.
Glasgow City Council will decide today if the project can go ahead, childcare facilities, internet café, theatre, office space and a games hall would all be provided for the community within the proposals.
