Malcolm Fraser, the Edinburgh firm that designed headquarters for Rambert (in London), Scottish Ballet and the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (pictured), has gone into liquidation.

Fraser said: ‘The work we did is beautiful and important. However, we have been unable to make it profitable. I am immensely proud of what we have done over 22 years and the influence it has had.’

Christopher Hampson said: ‘Scottish Ballet have a home that has invigorated the company and provided Glasgow with cultural space to be proud of – one that can inspire future generations of dancers and creative artists.’

    Norman is right – it’s the dance school extension next to Scottish Opera’s Edington St rehearsal space.

  • John Borstlap says:

    Maybe the oldfashioned flat linear sixties-style has something to do with it.
