The Scottish Parliament

I was through in Edinburgh on Monday and took a wander up to the Scottish Parliament at Holyrood. It’s a building which polarises opinion. It isn’t your usual statement iconic building which you would expect for a parliament. It’s complicated, it’s difficult to read from the street. There’s some strange post-rationalised concept about upturned boats. It now has a horrible entrance tacked on the front for increased security checks. There’s an awful lot of concrete.

That said, I love it.
