One of the rather odd design features of the Scottish Parliament is these rather odd designs around the window. The arhcitect, Enric Miralles never said what they were before he died in 2000, but his widow, Nicola Benedetta-Tagliabue says that they are meant to resemble curtains. Others have suggested triggers for scalextric cars, while many women seem to think they look more like hair-dryers. Whatever you reckon, they are an interesting feature of a very original building.
