Hinterland: an architectural masterpiece re-animated at night for the first time

"Discover Scotland’s greatest modernist ruin, St Peter’s Seminary, transformed by light and sound at the official launch event of Scotland’s Festival of Architecture 2016.

Fifty years on since the building opened, you can explore this architectural masterpiece re-animated at night for the first time.

As dusk falls to darkness, a walked route will weave through atmospheric woodland towards the abandoned building complex. Hinterland will reveal the full glory of the towering concrete ruin, combining moving light installations and projection with a haunting choral soundscape by composer Rory Boyle, recorded by the St Salvator’s Chapel Choir of the University of St Andrews.

With a two year restoration planned to start later in the year, this will be the only opportunity for the public to witness this world-renowned building in its current state of majestic decay ...

book ... at www.hinterland.org to be part of this monumental production.

Hinterland is an open manifesto for the ground-breaking creative work that will be programmed at St Peter’s Seminary from 2018 onwards. The long term plans will rescue, restore and reclaim this outstanding example of 20th century architecture and bring it back into productive use as a national platform for public art and world-class heritage destination."
