Scottish Architecture at its best ??
More than 120 architects from across the world entered the architectural competition to design the V&A at Dundee building. Models and descriptions of the six shortlisted designs are currently on display at Abertay University Library. Have a look at the only Scottish entry. WTF !!
best comment on their blog was from this guy : Although, frankly, this one would still look awful if it was clad in solid gold. If you want an impression of how it will "shimmer in the sunlight and shine like a lantern at night", just pop down to East Lothian to take a look at Torness Nuclear Power Station.
and another beauty : It achieves something truly miraculous, managing to make people appreciate the comparative beauty of the Olympia Leisure Pool, Dundee Hilton Hotel and Tayside House. And after all those buildings have been demolished, it will make us appreciate the beauty of Baldovie Incinerator and the new biofuel power station, if that's ever built. After seeing this, no other building will ever seem ugly again!
