.........it's the ugliest building in "scotland" bit that I'm most pleased with.

We've been trying to break out of Glasgow for ages.

What does he consider to be good contemporary architecture or can he not appreciate anything built after 1820?

Personally I think its an excellent building

Carefull FIN, that's my daughter.

Ach sure , is'nt that just what I like about this site ...........critical architectural analysis that can stretch from above the neck to below the waist .

Who said the Irish aren't just like the Scots, eh?
