Contentious plans to create a glass extension to Edinburgh College of Art have been scrapped after it failed to secure a vital £3 million arts prize.

Plans for the expansion, which would have included an underground gallery containing a massive plastercast of Winged Nike to welcome visitors, was wholly dependent on the college securing the Scottish Community Foundation prize which was awarded to a rival bidder this week.
