Glasgow City Council has been accused of letting the work of one of its most significant architects, Alexander Thomson, crumble and decay, reported The Guardian (Jan 16, p8).

Architecture critic and lecturer Gavin Stamp is quoted by the paper,

bemoaning the neglect of Thomson's buildings.

'What Glasgow councilllors have done to Alexander Thomson's buildings is utterly criminal. In any other country in the world they would be preserved and celebrated, here they are just left to the mercy of vandals,' he said.

The city council has agreed to contribute£50,000 towards a£250,000

programme to stabilise and floodlight Caledonia Road church, one of

Thomson's best works.
