Timed to coincide with Architecture Week, The Royal Mail have issued a set of 6 stamps depicting symbols of modern British Architecture built in the new millennium.
The 64p stamp is an image of An Turas , A ferry shelter built on the Scottish island of Tiree. An Turas means "The Journey"
Inscape constructed the bridge section of the shelter in our workshops in Edinburgh and transported it to the island.
The shelter was also designed to be a sculpture, something that might stimulate the imagination of the observer and the user. Ironically, it has achieved fame far beyond even the imagination of its designers. Further details of the project can be found on our portfolio page under the category "Social"
The other five stamps in this set of six depict London's "Gerkin" building; The Deep, a submerged aquarium in Hull; Selfridges in Birmingham; Dundee's Maggie Centre; and Downland Gridshell, Chichester.
