When it first opened this retail mall was featured everywhere as it was a novel concept for Scotland and was seen as being both more upmarket than other emerging shopping malls and more integral to the city’s structure.
A replica of Foucault’s Pendulum is hung in the building atrium and the symmetrical sweeping staircases use ornate Art Nouveau-influenced balustrading. Some of the spaces are rather dark and unwelcoming such as under the stairs and in side aisles.
