Just had this appear on my architecture RSS feeds, and it looks interesting if I can make it up there. A series of old council blocks in Glasgow are to be “imploded” during this year, with the first set in just a few weeks time.

Watching buildings being brought down by explosion is always interesting on telly, but you just can’t experience the power of the blasts as the ground shakes and the air reverberates around you – so this could be an exciting weekend away.

The Skyscraper News website recommends waiting for the July set to be exploded as those are the biggest buildings – and the weather is probably nicer then as well.

Woo!
