Was asking myself is Dundee a city at odds with itself? The first thing i thought when we visited was ‘this place isn’t too bad’ and I realised that that was largely because I’d only ever heard it derided as ‘Scumdee’, which is funny until the people of the city itself start to believe it. I have been working on the idea of incorporating the Greek Agora into my design for Dundee Cultural Centre. I like the simple idea of moving from a more public to a more private place and the democracy of spaces which this entails.
