22 Oct 2016 – e-architect provided an architectural walking tour of the city centre yesterday, for 19 Norwegian engineers and better halves from Bergen, thankfully with plenty of sunshine!

Aberdeen – Introduction

Aberdeen is known as the Granite City and located in the North East Scotland. The area is focused since the 1970s on North Sea Oil production and contains offices for numerous major oil companies. It is Scotland’s third most populous city.

The most important new Aberdeen building from the recent decades is the University Aberdeen Library Building by denmark’s by Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects:

Key recent buildings that are well worth a visit include Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centre Aberdeen by Norway’s Snøhetta, Architects and more recently Aberdeen Art Gallery Building Redevelopment by Glasgow’s Gareth Hoskins Architects.

Justice Mill Lane by Edinburgh’s Richard Murphy Architects and the Marischal Square Hotel by Halliday Fraser Munro Architects are worth a look. Coming soon is the New Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre by Keppie Design.

The Marischal College Building is one of the largest, and finest, granite buildings in the world. It was carefully restored to the Silver City’s skyline after a major £40m redevelopment by Holmes Architects.

All these feature on our Aberdeen Architecture Tours.

Aberdeen Architecture Walking Tours

Aberdeen Architecture Tours can focus on traditional or contemporary buildings in North East Scotland or a mix of the two. The Aberdeen Architecture Tour is typically an introduction to the city’s main buildings but it can be tailored to your group’s interests if you provide information to us in good time. We are usually able accommodate your group’s specific needs and architectural interests on our Aberdeen Architecture Tours.
