Doolan Prize 2009: finalists named in battle for Scotland’s best building


I think Rory sums up this shortlist excellently in his comment. To see Moore Street housing on the shortlist is extremely disappointing, this is one of the worst examples of urban masterplanning I have ever come across. In an area of the city that badly needs to engage with the street this scheme creates a walled and gated community that completely ignores it's context in every aspect. A series of very grim disparate courtyards has been created within the wall that contain little if no meaningful amenity and at the centre of the scheme sits a truly ugly Richard Murphy building. Shocking
