Museum of Scotland
Opened in 1998, the museum possesses a distinctive look. The building's architecture is a comprised of geometric, Corbusian forms, but also has numerous references to Scotland, such as brochs and castellated, defensive, architecture. It is clad in golden Morayshire sandstone, which the architect, Gordon Benson, has called "the oldest exhibit in the building", a reference to Scottish geology. The building was a 1999 Stirling Prize nominee.
