A WALK IN THE PARK
Hawkins\Brown director David Bickle last week gave an intriguing insight into how the tricky Park Hill revamp was going, during a slot at The Urban Regeneration Toolbox conference at the Lowry in Manchester. The practice's relationship with co-designer Studio Egret West, he admitted, was turning out to be quite 'interesting'. However, Bickle said he had no intention of trying to copy the former Will Alsop starlets' amboyant approach to the redesign of the controversial '60s concrete behemoth in Sheffield. It was more a case, Bickle claimed, of 'vive la difference' than 'spot the difference.'
