THE M8 Baillieston Interchange and a 1950s office block in Glasgow's Clyde Street are among a host of unlikely structures being showcased in an architecture exhibition.

Produced for the Glasgow City Heritage Trust, the exhibition features photos of what are described as "several outstanding buildings, structures and public artwork" in Glasgow and across Scotland.

They have been carefully chosen because they reflect the complex ways in which Scotland's built environment has changed between 1945 and 1985, and many of the buildings remain controversial.

The exhibition includes the Burrell Collection, which opened in 1983 and is now an A-listed building.

It also includes the now derelict and at-risk Typographical House in Clyde Street, a rare small-scale office building from the late 1950s and former home of the Graphical, Paper and Media Union.

The 1977 Baillieston Interchange on the M8/M73, is also included as a reminder of the impact the car has had on Scotland's landscape.

Carsten Hermann, curator of the exhibition said: "We've chosen a mix of buildings, and some are more at risk than others.

"The exhibition explores how Scotland's recent past is reflected in its diverse built environment, and how this heritage is cared for and protected.

"It looks beyond the most famous or infamous examples of Scotland's 20th century architecture and includes lesser-known buildings as well as designed landscapes and art objects which illustrate important aspects of the nation's modern history.

"Typographical House for example, is quite a distinct 1950s small scale office block. I don't know of any other in Glasgow or indeed Scotland that is like it.

"The Baillieston Interchange was chosen for two reasons, one because it shows the impact the car has had on Scotland's landscape, and two because when you see the interchange, you know you are in Glasgow."

The exhibition, Building Scotland 1945-1985, in collaboration with Docomomo Scotland, features images, fabric and architectural models.

Docomomo is the International Committee for Documentation and Conservation of Buildings, Sites and Neighbourhoods of the Modern Movement.

The exhibition is now open at the Glasgow City Heritage Trust, 54 Bell Street, and runs until runs September 2 at.

It is open Monday to Friday, from 10am to 4pm.
