Researching the Granite City for 'The Buildings of Scotland’

Joseph Sharples reflects on the twelve months he spent in Aberdeen, 2009–2010, researching and writing about the city's architecture for the Buildings of Scotland volume, Aberdeenshire: South and Aberdeen.

He describes the process of research and fieldwork, and the challenge of distilling the Granite City's architectural riches – from the cloistered precincts of King's College to the harbour installations of today – into 200 pages of text in the approved Pevsner format.
