Seen from the Road

I sometimes worry that people think I don't like modern architecture. I do work for an organisation preserving historic buildings, which I am very passionate about. But I did spend years studying modern architecture and design too. What I don't like is bad modern architecture; bland, corporate, unsympathetic to its surroundings. I like this though, the new library building at Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen. I pass it on my way to the gym. At night the tower glows green like a supervillain's lair across Aberdeen. I love buildings lit up in colours, shining at night.
