Buildings designed by architects firm Gillespie, Kidd & Coia. Nothing else please.

About GKC

Glasgow-based architects (1927-1986). Early work on many Catholic churches in and around the West of Scotland. Most famous for St Peter's Seminary at Cardross, recently voted Scotland's most important modern building by Prospect Magazine. Later work on university and college buildings.

The more you see, the more their buildings become quickly recognisable - modernist, later brutalist, always interesting.
