The Great Marischal Square Cornswaggle – 3D

The people of Aberdeen have been cornswaggled by their council AGAIN.

The big lie that was Marischal Square is exposed.

There is no square. There probably never was any intention of creating a square, by any definition.

We were duped. We were wary of their promises but were duped by that old trick of the public consultation. Look where that’s taken us.

Cast your eyes on this projection for how the Muse Development will look once the concrete is poured and the common land, that belongs to everyone in the city, is turned over to a private development for the erection of tawdry towers.

Which means this development was given the full-hearted support of Labour members of the council willingly.

Not one of them recognised the architectural outrage they were about to impose on the city.

  1. As a tourist abroad, I choose to visit the old medieval quarters and admire the architecture. I avoid the glass box office districts which seem so sterile. So who is this development meant for; businesses and shops it would seem? With the combined intelligence of Aberdeen, you’d think we could find some councillors of intelligence. Why does it never change?

  2. I don’t know what it is about Aberdeen but it seems to have an unerring ability to elect Councillors with little or no aesthetic sense or any that they might have is parked in some far away spot while they get on with the business of “development”. And this goes across the political spectrum; the present gang’s degradation of the city’s identity is on a par with the late and unlamented team which looked to taking Wood’s “gift” with the intention of undoing Union Terrace Gardens. Muse, Wood , , , what next for Aberdeen? Nae doot mair ignorant Cooncillors.
