Abstract: First paragraph: Down they came. Glasgow’s Red Road Flats have (mostly) been demolished, having dominated the north-eastern skyline of the city for half a century. Following the destruction of the first two blocks in 2012, the passing of the remaining six is a moment where the whole country should take stock. Access this article on The Conversation website at
