Photo Friday: Scottish Parliament Building (Edinburgh)

Europe, International Travel, Photography

When one comes to Edinburgh, they’re usually not thinking of modern architecture, but that’s exactly what one gets with the Scottish Parliament building. Not surprisingly, the building has brought about its share of controversy: the choices of location, architect, design, use of non-indigenous materials (granite from China instead of Scotland), and construction company were all criticized by politicians, the media and the Scottish public. I find it to be both beautiful and delightfully out of place.

Photos taken July 2011.
