The skyline of Glasgow has been radically transformed as high rise tower blocks have
been blown down and bulldozed. 30% of the city's high rise flats have disappeared
since 2006, communities dispersed across the city and the East End has 'been
raised from the ashes' via the Commonwealth Games. Does this Disappearing Glasgow
herald a renaissance in the city? 
BAFTA Scotland award-winning photographer and filmmaker, and LCC alumnus, Chris Leslie gives an illustrated talk on his multimedia project and accompanying book ‘Disappearing Glasgow.’
