This building has gone through every stage of evolution, from caravan salesroom (imaging two caravans perched precariously within the glass tower at the top of the building) to now-trendy residential flats. A gem of architecture which was saved from demolition three years ago...
  • The one where the Kebab Palace is situated. Either that or KelvinGrove Galleries.
  • Royal infirmary. Very gothic and mysterious.
