A new survey in the Architect's Journal has revealed that two thirds of architects in Scotland are planning on voting for independence.

The AJ reports that " A hefty 59 per cent of the nearly 160 architects who voted in AJ’s recent online survey said they were in favour of the country cutting its ties with the UK – around 12 per cent above the number of yes voters in the latest YouGov poll of the general public.

Those working in small practices showed a clear preference for independence, but those at medium to large practices were divided by an almost even split between the yes and no camps".

Responding to the survey Alasdair Stephen of Dualchas Architects and Architects for Yes said, 

"Scotland will have more self-confidence, which will be reflected in our architecture,’ he said. ‘We will be equal with other nations in the world and we will realise that our architecture should be just as good. A lack of confidence and invisibility is preventing it from being so".
