I have to stand up for Glasgow College of Building and Printing and let you know that the pictures have been mixed up in your Wonders & Blunders (1 July, page 40).
Look closely at the roof of the tall building in the lower photo and you will see where the resemblance to Le Corbusier’s Unite d’Habitation comes in.

… Yes, yes, thank you, we know
While leafing through Building, I was hit by a blast from my past. It was my old college, the Glasgow College of Building and Printing, in Stuart MacDonald’s “Wonder & blunder”. I’d just like to point out that the photographs of the two buildings and associated “botched” and “brutal” descriptions are the wrong way round. I know this is rather petty but from my protective point of view I thought I would bring it to your attention.
