This Art Deco Glasgow landmark deserves to feature somewhere in some high budget Agatha Christie detective series - I see Hercule Poirot sauntering down Sauchiehall Street with a sausage supper, his mind engrossed in unravelling a serious crime, whilst considering whether or not to pop in to "Nice n Sleazy's" just across the road (a notable watering hole).

A really superb building - I remember it as a Strathclyde University Halls of Residence, but the University sold it in the early 2000s.

This work was very educational, as matters of how much detail to include were very much to the fore.

Also on my mind was how to depict windows, of which this structure has many. I left many with an open right side, so as not to create myriad "boxes". Some resemble hair combes or "E"s, but I'm happy with my choice.

In addition, in the central building detail, I didn't depict the vertice of the curved elements fixed on to the building - I feel the brain naturally adds it in by itself, therefore I display the stunning arc by itself.
