On Sunday I took a day off the PhD, went through to Stirling and watched a 3D map of Scotland be created out of cake. This event was running as part of the year long Festival of Architecture taking place this year. It is definitely an unusual way to spend a Sunday but it was brilliant. The event started at 10 and finished at 4 and you could come and go as you pleased. I arrived to take a tour of the individual buildings before they were placed on the map, headed off for some lunch, then returned to see the final map come together. The cake-decorating skills were pretty impressive as bakers, amateur and professional, had signed up in advance to create specific buildings.
Dundee was well represented with DCA, Verdant Works and a model of the V & A all on display along with the Tay Rail Bridge!
Overall it was a super day out. I love that there is a variety of interesting, novel events to go to now in Scotland every weekend, compared to ten years ago. I could have stayed in Dundee to say farewell to the Oor Wullies, many of which are staying in the city following an auction last night which raised £883,000 for the Archie Foundation Tayside which is superb! So, plenty of things to do at the moment. Hope you’re having a great week and thank you for reading!
