Enric Miralles and Benedetta Tagliabue’s Scottish Parliament Building has been mired in controversy during its construction but has emerged as a highly acclaimed piece of architecture. Sadly Miralles did not survive to see the full realisation of his vision but the shortlisting for the UK’s Stirling Prize will be a fitting tribute. Miralles, “We hope that from this emerges a series of identifications between the building and the land, land and citizens, citizens and the building, not just because of an ‘image’, but physically shaping the act of sitting together.”
