Museum of Scotland

The Museum of Scotland is another example of modern architecture sitting among the more traditional parts of Edinburgh, and it's another building you either like or loathe. Prince Charles apparently resigned from the trustees committee overseeing the design of the new museum when this building was chosen. And at the official opening, which was on a Wednesday, when asked what he thought about the new museum, he apparently said, "I never talk about architecture on Wednesdays." The circular tower part of the museum houses a fantastic restaurant with superb views to the castle.

its really a modern building but its structure reminds me of the forts. SO in this way fits the the environment I guess.
