St. Peter’s Seminary in Cardross, Scotland

Scotland is beginning a year-long Festival of Architecture.

CHR Comment: The Scottish festival beings in a former Roman Catholic Seminary that the church no longer uses. The second link below describes the former seminary as a modernist masterpiece, which was designed by confessed atheists of Jewish and Presbyterian background. The seminary opened in 1966 but was only used to train priests for fourteen years.
