Alsop plans have eluded Middlesbrough council


You say in your report on Will Alsop's plan for Middlesbrough that he is to 'sweep away most of the existing structures, including cooling towers and the Transporter Bridge' (AJ 22.7.04). If this is accurate, it would seem a shame that one of Middlesbrough's few iconic industrial buildings needs to come down to be replaced by what appears in your illustration to be rather lumpen, if fancily decorated, blocks.

Perhaps someone should tell Middlesbrough council, whose website states that 'just to reassure all those who were wondering, Middlesbrough's Transporter Bridge is here to stay!' Tim Godsmark, Godsmark Architecture, London
