Last Tuesday afternoon - the Debating Chamber at the Scottish Parliament Building. They were debating whether Scottish MP's should be paid if/when they're in prison (it must happen a lot for it to take up so much time in a Parliament!) What a modern building inside and out, I could spend a lifetime drawing this one - it's architectural poetry! It wasn't easy to draw that roof structure in less than an hour - can see why the construction ended up 3 years late and 10 times over budget. The building's (Spanish) architect Enric Miralles died in 2000 (at the so young age of 45) and 4 years before the building was completed.
