No Longer and Not Yet

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract / Description of output

This paper outlines the work of the Invisible College (IC), an AHRC funded network between the author, geographers (Lorimer, Gallagher, UoG) architects (Pert, GSA) and the arts charity NVA.

St Peter’s, once a modernist masterpiece, abandoned by the RC church in 1987, is now a ruin. Building on the experiments with time, narrative, and place explored in ‘The Secret Lives of Buildings’ and also The Uses of Disorder (Sennett, 1968), and Industrial Ruins (Edensor, 2005) this paper challenges previous proposals for St Peter’s, and articulates the IC vision which now forms the basis of development plans for the site.
