  1. Scottish Parliament House, Holyrood, Scotland, UK -- Enric Miralles
    -- "the price ticket ... edges ever closer to the magic half billion pound mark ($895 million)" (Hugh Pearman, st_04.05.23)

    -- "[Sydney] Opera House's price rose more than 14-fold between competition and completion, whereas the Holyrood project, assuming costs do not spiral beyond 500m, will have a ten fold-rise. Albeit over a much shorter period - six years for Holyrood rather than 17 for Sydney." (Hugh Pearman, st_04.05.23)

    -- "... the message running round the world is how angry the Scots are about the escalating price, up from £40 to £431 million, almost 11 times the initial estimate (the Sydney Opera House cost only 10 times its original budget)." (Charles Jencks, sh_04.08.08)
