Rearview of the Parliament


This is the view of the back of the Parliament from Holyrood Road. From here you can see that rather than being one building, it is a collection of inter-connected buildings. You can also see how it fits into the Edinburgh landscape and how it grows out of what is around it. The architect, Miralles, said that Edinburgh had enough columns and spires already, so this was to be a building of the land, and coming from the land. I'll leave that to you to judge.

Thanks again to Chris H for posting for me while I've been away in la belle France.
