Don't get me wrong, I love Dundee. I'm a Dundonian and proud of it. Trouble is, no other Scottish city has such a history of totally disastrous town planning. Something of a paradox, given that the Father of Town Planning, Patrick Geddes, was a professor at Dundee University.
Here's a couple of examples of what I mean. In the top pic, the new building on the right is Dundee Contemporary Arts. Nothing wrong with a Contemporary Arts building being built along contemporary style. But why the hell stick it next to a beautiful old church like that?
The bottom pic is even more criminal, slap bang in the city centre we have another fine old church and look what they put up beside it...... a Mecca bingo hall!.....someone should really have been made to suffer for these atrocities!
Other cities put statues up to famous sons, adventurers, poets and heroes....... what do we have in the city square?....... Desperate Dan!.........doh!
Odd thing is, we can criticise our city with impugnity...... but let any outsider start and that's when the trouble begins.
