The projects reflected the variety of contemporary architecture emerging from the numerous Scottish landscapes and ranged from the Scottish Parliament by Catalan architect Enric Miralles and Benedetta Tagliabue Miralles, and in partnership with Scottish practice RMJM to An Turas on Tiree by Sutherland Hussey. The exhibition toured to Scotland, Spain, France and the Netherlands.
