St Paul's controversy comes back to haunt


It looks like a committee of Classicists, minimalists and fascists have raided their bins to assault one of the country's most treasured buildings. You know what I am talking about!

While the debate about Piano's 'Shard' is facing public outcry, a building with the most shattering lack of entasis has bullied up to the steps of St Paul's Cathedral.

Can anyone explain how this has happened? I thought there was a very thorough competition for this site 10 years ago.We now need to be able to view it from 15km since this adjunct is too abominable to stand beside.

It really does make me feel so very sad.
