Northeast Scotland’s main centre of contemporary visual arts under threat not by credit crunch but by North Sea oil millionaire Sir Ian Wood’s plans to flatten Union Terrace Gardens. Brisac Gonzalez’s design brought welcome contemporary architecture to Aberdeen. Plans to raise the sunken gardens to street level have abounded for decades. But Ian Wood pledged up to £50 million of his own cash to be matched by public funding. A feasibility study commissioned by Scottish Enterprise is to be finlaised by March 2009.
Facilities: contemporary arts & house galleries, printmaking, television & dance studios, workshops, education suite.

Hazelwood School : gm+ad
The Architecture in Scotland Annual ran a poll to identify Scotland’s best new building of 2008. By a huge margin gm+ad’s Hazelwood School for the sensory impaired picked up the honour. “It is in the delivery of public service, however that any such project must be measured and in this Hazelwood really excels”.
