Building: Museum of Scotland

Location: Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Completion: 1998

Cost: $114 million

Architects: Benson and Forsyth

Construction: Bovis


AE Interests: An extension to the older Royal Museum of Scotland, the building is somewhat castle like,symbolic of the protection it gives to the history contained within it. The view from the top is pretty cool too if you ever get the chance…
