Photos taken in the rain of this bold but controversial intervention in the Scottish capital’s city centre.

3-8 St Andrew Square Building Edinburgh

St Andrew Square sits at the East end of the New Town’s principal axis, George Street. The New Town is known across the world as a masterclass in urban planning, and outwith the city centre retains some wonderful groups of Georgian architecture.

The 3-8 St Andrew Square Building development was controversial partly with those who love traditional architecture but also with those who admire good quality Modern architecture.

The previous building on this site, the Scottish Provident Building, from 1961, was designed by the respected Scottish architecture practice Rowand Anderson Kininmonth & Paul.
