Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art One

So expansive is the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art’s collection of modern and contemporary art, that it takes over two enormous buildings – somewhat unimaginatively named ‘Modern One’ and ‘Modern Two’ – separated by a vast stretch of landscaped parkland. The striking façade of Modern One is characterized by its twinkling ‘Everything’s Going to be Alright’ banner, the work of artist Martin Creed, and fronted by a giant stepped landform and water feature by Charles Jencks.

Inside, the extensive permanent collection includes an outstanding array of 20th century artwork, with a special emphasis on Cubist and Expressionist works and a number of galleries devoted to 21st century art. Highlights include works by household names like Picasso, Matisse, Francis Bacon and Andy Warhol, as well as more recent masterpieces by luminaries like Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin, Gilbert & George and Antony Gormley.
