Scotland’s New Parliament Building, Edinburgh

One story that has hit the headlines recently is the controversy surrounding the Egyptian Halls in Glasgow.  Read our ‘View from the Chair’ for more on the Society’s perspective on the matter.  There are also reports on the restoration of the White House, an art deco roadhouse in Craigmillar returned to its former glory; on a project to record digitally, by laser scanner, the natural landscape, built dwellings and archaeological remains of St Kilda.  This edition’s ‘Talking Point’, by Malcolm Fraser, is a discussion of regeneration versus new build, with particular regard to the VAT regime.  Other highlights include author Alexander McCall Smith’s favourite building; and critic Willie Miller’s look at the new Riverside Museum in Glasgow.
