Pictures of 240 Roystonhill demo by Steven Mark Browning, on Flickr
240 Roystonhill was part of a trio of 25-storey high-rise (UK) towerblocks. It was built in the late 1960s. It was demolished on Sunday, June 14th, 1992, the first high-rise towerblock in Glasgow to be demolished. The remaining two (tall ones) are to be demolished by 2014/15.


This block, 20 Rosemount Street is not long for this world.

I think it will be demolished next month, but I'm not too sure. It will also be a blow-down. 40 Rosemount Street is still open for now.

Carandiru Penitentiary, São Paulo City, Brazil - built in the 1920s, imploded in December 2002




The prison was considered a model prison in its first decades, built in the North side of Sao Paulo, back when that region was considered remote. By the 1960s the city had engulfed the prison and by the 1980's it had become a profoundly problematic prison

Picture circa 1998:



There is a movie made about its late years, called "Estação Carandiru" (Carandiru in English) - the "station" was due to the fact that there is an elevated metro station just outside the prison, which the inmates could see (and we could see the prison) and dream of freedom


A nice park was built in its place

Not a building but nontheless a great implosion:

The demolition of the first part of the Rio de Janeiro Port Elevated Freeway (Perimetral), built in the early 1970's. The implosion is part of the renovation plans for the Port area, as part of the package for the 2016 Olympics.

This was just a few days ago.

9 Coll Place, late September 1992



9 Coll Place was a 18-storey towerblock in Glasgow. It was built as part of a trio of towerblocks in the Germiston area of Glasgow in the mid-late 1960s. 9 Coll Place was the first one of the trio to come down, the second block in the city to be demolished, the first block being 240 Roystonhill three months prior. The other two blocks, 15 Forge Place (left) and 15 Coll Place (center) was demolished on June 2008 and May 15th 2011 respectively.

5 of the remaining six Red Road Flats, 63, 93 & 123 Petershill Drive, 10-30 Petershill Court and 10 Red Road Court will be demolished on July 23rdfor the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games opening ceremony.

Glasgow 2014: Red Road flats demolished for opening ceremony



Glasgow 2014: Five Red Road flats will be demolished live during the opening ceremony, as James Cook reports


Blocks of flats which have been part of Glasgow's skyline for almost 50 years will be blown up as part of the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony.
Five of the six remaining Red Road flats will be brought down in just 15 seconds in the biggest demolition of its kind ever seen in Europe.
The event will be shown live on a 100m (328ft) wide screen at the Celtic Park ceremony and to a huge TV audience.
The 30-storey structures were built in the mid 1960s.
The original eight tower blocks housed more than 4,000 people and were once the highest flats in Europe.
They are being demolished as part of a Glasgow Housing Association (GHA) regeneration project.
Eileen Gallagher, chairwoman of the Glasgow 2014 ceremonies, culture and Queen's Baton Relay committee, said: "By sharing the final moments of the Red Road flats with the world as part of the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games, Glasgow is proving it is a city that is proud of its history but doesn't stand still, a city that is constantly regenerating, renewing and re-inventing itself."

"Glasgow's story is always one of its people; their tenacity, their genuine warmth, their ambitions. Marking the end of Red Road is very much a celebration of all of those things."
The first tower block was brought down in June 2012. The second demolition took place in May last year.
The five tower blocks will be brought down simultaneously during the opening ceremony on 23 July.
One tower block will remain which is currently used to house people seeking asylum in the UK.
As part of the ambitious operation, 887 homes will be evacuated from the surrounding area with an exclusion zone around the whole site.



I'd rather this didn't happen

I'll be surprised if they come down. On the last two they just got lucky.

WWII Memorial, Kutaisi, Georgia








In 2009, the Georgian president blew up this gorgeous Soviet-era WWII monument dedicated to Georgians who lost their lives in the war, in order to build a Parliment building (despite lots of land available around the monument). Not only were many Georgians and Russians insulted by this, but the blast itself killed two people.

The biggest (in terms of width & height combined) single building ever demolished in Glasgow, I think.
