Why are corners so important?
- Corner buildings are placed in an important location, where two streets meet.
- These intersections are the places where people are most likely to congregate.
- Corner buildings are highly visible. A typical town building will have one major facade facing the street with the other 3 sides tucked into the block. A corner building has 2 main facades facing the street. More visibility = more importance.
- The corner building is more likely to shout “look at me!”
The Broch has some spectacular corner buildings in its town centre, built to make a bold statement.
