An underground gallery with a modern glass entrance is set to be created at Edinburgh College of Art.

Plans for the expansion, which will include a plastercast of "Winged Nike" to welcome visitors, have been lodged with the city council.

But they look sure to prove controversial, with critics saying the result would be an "incongruous add on" akin to the Usher Hall extension and planned expansion of Edinburgh International Conference Centre.
