FESTIVAL LEGACY SHOULD BE LEFT TO THE PAST

LETTERS

I wonder how many people gave a second glance to the Festival of Britain pavilion faced with demolition (AJ 06.04.06)?

In a museum it might attain some gravitas, but otherwise it hardly grabs attention. Making it one of a triumvirate with the Festival Hall and the Lansbury Estate is laughable.

Make's sharply geometric structure looks far more exciting. Isn't it time to stop wallowing in the past?
