Editorial: Nov 2002
Stirling Prize, Scottish Architecture

Last month’s Stirling Prize – and ensuing commentaries – should have refocused our eyes again on the health of Scottish architecture. There seem to be opposing views here, or is it just architecture critics setting up various standpoints and counterpoints? Sudjic, Pearman, Rodger, Wilson and Linklater have all commented, sometimes only by request, on whether things are improving or whether the building boom (mostly in Edinburgh) is simply throwing up more rather than better architecture. I’m trying not to join the fray but surely Scottish architecture is improving but yes, we could be better.
