A photo a day from Scotland’s biggest city.

The yellow roof here is from the brand spanking new building of Scottish Ballet, tacked onto the Tramway Theatre (the pointy rooves on the left). The ballet company was supposed to take up residence in part of the Tramway, but in 2006 that part of the building suddenly collapsed (fortunately someone from the Tramway noticed it was about to happen and had the foresight to run out and stop cars from driving up Pollokshaws Road, and so averted what could have been a very serious accident). Rather than rebuild it as it was, they’ve come up with a totally modern replacement. I must be honest, I don’t like it at all, and don’t expect it to date well. Hopefully the art created inside the building will be more sublime than the building itself.
