This double lecture will consider the development of ‘The Tenement in Glasgow’ from their original design and construction, through to periods of decay and neglect, and then subsequent restoration and preservation.
John Joseph Burns, an architect in Glasgow, will discuss his research into the tenement as an architectural typology in Glasgow. Showing examples of the early tenements that rose around the High St through to the inter-war tenements of the 1930s.
Professor Douglas Robertson of the University of Stirling will then discuss the factors that contributed to the neglect of tenements, the emergence of movements and organisations focussed on saving them, and the policy that followed.
