Well-versed for Burns
Stirling-shortlisted practice Sutherland Hussey Architects has drawn up designs for a museum celebrating the work of Robert Burns, to be situated in the great poet's birthplace, Alloway.
The new structure - designed to replace an existing early 20th-century building - will aim to 'create a greater understanding of Burns'work, songs and music'while also 'connecting people to the landscape around them'.
The building will have permanent galleries, an education centre and a small tourist cafe. Sutherland Hussey's Tiree ferry shelter is one of six schemes up for the Stirling Prize, to be announced on Channel 4 on Sunday evening.
