Highland Fling

It’s a grey day in New York today and everything I thought about posting seemed too cheerful after Andree Putman and Chateau Les Merles so I thought I would post a photographic essay of a modernist castle on the moors of Scotland instead. Created by one of the world’s leading architects, Moshe Safdie, the brawny yet graceful stone and glass towers of Corrour Lodge marry the past to the present. The photographs by Martyn Thompson are so breathtaking that I am going to let them do all the talking. If you want more information, it can be found in the February 2006 issue of House & Garden. Enjoy!

    What a magnificent piece of architecture! The concept really captures my imagination…a modern castle.

    I don’t even think you need to be a fan of moderism to appreciate how spectacular this place is!

    WOW! I’ve been to Scotland and I never saw anything remotely this modern. How fantastic. I can’t wait for the article to come out. Thanks
