"A few weeks ago there was hope that at last we would see the end of that ugly decrepit building called Haymarket station. What a joke once again this weak-kneed council has kow-towed to the heritage groups (News, July 7).
If Haymarket is going to become a modern transport hub it needs a modern building reflecting the 21st century railway system that reflects the era we live in not the past which this city seems frightened to leave behind and which has ruined at least half a dozen modern developments. I think future generations will look at us and say: "What a hotch-potch of architecture, they did not know whether to go backwards or forward"."
Major developments this month include the announcement of the Princes StreetGalleries shortlist and subsequent pull-out of two architects; the Haymarket Goods Yard images and press release and subsequent controversy courtesy of Olle Wiig, Norwegian Consul and others.
Calton Square and omni edinburgh have almost been unveiled, a huge difference for the city's streetscape and also views principally from Calton Hill. The News Summary now carries picture links.
Glasgow Architecture Johnny Rodger has written an introduction to the site which is at glasgowarchitecture.co.uk. Building images received will be loaded once approval has been given.
The rise in total hits has been sustained and added too. The month's major development is possibility of funding from Edinburgh 'groups'.
I receive so much correspondence - ALL images should now go to
, details at top of news - but can't publish any unless marked 'for publication': letters most welcome.
