The Glasgow twins are the best tower blocks I've seen in Glasgow. In fact I would say they are iconic for the city, though I wish they would power-wash the facade for once.

This is what they would look like if they were power-washed:

Sadly, it isn't going to happen. They are headed down the same road that Red Road is currently on: demolition.

What? They're absolutely beautiful buildings.

You don't see many like that any more. Those things could probably withstand a nuclear blast

I love Brutalist Architecture

The people who grew up in the mid-century (40s-late 70s) need to understand that the buildings that were new in their time are becoming more and more historic and worthy of preservation.
