PagePark Architects has completed the Great Tapestry of Scotland Gallery in Galashiels for Scottish Borders Council.

The building was designed to house a visual history of the nation crafted by the hands of 1,000 stitchers.

Designed by Andrew Crummy to a narration written by Alistair Moffat, with the grand vision imagined by author Alexander McCall Smith, the 143m tapestry is a linear pictorial history depicting key events going back 12,000 years. It was meticulously embroidered in communities across Scotland led by master stitcher Dorie Wilkie.
