Foreword This publication is intended as no more than a photographic introduction to Peter Womersley’s buildings in Scotland. Interest in his work has grown in recent years and events during the 2016 Festival of Architecture will undoubtedly raise his profile further. Womersley enjoyed considerable well deserved acclaim outside Scotland during his lifetime; let’s hope that 2016 brings a resurgence. The buildings included here are: High Sunderland, near Selkirk,1955 The Rig, Gattonside, 1956 The Studio, Gattonside, 1956 and later Church Street housing, Galashiels, 1963 Gala Fairydean Stadium, 1963 Nuffield Transplant Unit, Edinburgh, 1963 Edenside Health Centre, Kelso, 1965 Roxburgh County Offices, Newtown St Boswells,1966 Studio for Bernat Klein, near Selkirk, 1972 Boiler House, Dingleton Hospital, Melrose, 1977 Monklands Leisure Centre, Coatbridge, 1977
