Saltire Award shortlist revealed
July 31 2012
Panel chair Dick Cannon said: “The shortlisted buildings are a rich variety of beautifully conceived and executed projects covering all of the regions of Scotland, which tackle the challenges of boosting local economies, carbon reduction, inner city innovation, reuse and adaptation and which demonstrate that design quality remains high in spite of the economic conditions.”
Awards panel convener Jane Paterson added: “The projects we selected for shortlisting provided exemplary contextual responses to their environments and innovative solutions to their clients’ briefs. The shortlist represents a wide range of site conditions, some very challenging.
“Some projects have exceptional sites, surely one of Scotland’s assets. The shortlist is diverse geographically, architecturally and in terms of scale. We believe it represents emerging quintessential qualities in contemporary Scottish architecture.”
