Editorial: February 2002

Waverley: surely a jewel in any architects crown to work on this station’s redevelopment. Competition or no, the situation will be keenly observed by all. Edinburgh has to grasp this opportunity and really demand the absolute pinnacle of engineering and sublime architecture. Edinburgh should be expecting effortless transport interchange and architecture interwoven with the powerful valley context. Edinburgh has to dream…

Contacts: as the hits continue to rise fast the architectural community again drags its feet. Many enjoy the site but are yet to support it, and why should they, they didn’t ask for it….optimistically the general public however continue to write in from all over the World with positive comments. As the site grows links to websites of organisations not reciprocating or supporting will naturally be reviewed: this process is beginning.

In passing the site is still No.1 in the World for ‘contemporary architecture’ search on the world’s most popular search engine, google, and No.1 on the widely-used Microsoft’s msn for Edinburgh architects websites. Edinburgh is lucky to ‘have’ such a site – is the site lucky to ‘have’ Edinburgh?
