Three Scottish buildings make long list for Stirling
Archiseek / Scotland / News / 2005 / June 17
The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) tonight celebrated Scottish architecture by giving RIBA Awards to three buildings across the country. Projects honoured range in size and use from an office building in Glasgow with an innovative LED lighting system incorporated into its glass cladding which permits the exterior to go through colour changes; to affordable housing at Rothesay on the Isle of Bute with impressive sustainability built in; to the major achievement of the Scottish Parliament Building.

The vertical rectangle is such an elegant shape for any window, especially when used in such quantities and in such a fashion as yours.
Perhaps why Miesian architecture has such appeal also.
The glazing is equally fine. The purple I think works the best of all the colours

The Scottish Parliament has some strong opposition though for the Stirling, looking at the list posted by Trace.
Not the shoo- in most people are predicting. The Foster projects look pretty damn impressive and I think also it may be time for Hadid?
In fact a very strong shortlist for the Stirling, indeed....more than previous years
