This is a great project / opportuity to create a strong counterpoint to the area’s exisitng strong artistic and commercial activities and create a richer social mix by providing a sense of place and identity, a place to idle stand and stare. Nearly 300 years of history is a fascinating tapestry to work with!
Healthrow airport as a new urban village in london, redeveloping and thinking of the future of london ? And build a sustainable new airport at the isle of grain. This would make for two viable and sustainable communities. Perhaps these ideas are too bold for this government? If implemented they would drive london forward as the Victorians did so well.
beautiful and sensible wonderful use of concrete
beautiful and elegant
Expandinhg Heathrow is not an option for those who live there or most londoners. the new island is a good idea and one that has been around for some time before boris picked it up for that reason it makes sense, the east has benefited hugely from the olympics and the improvement in infrastructure that brought with it. the birds will find a new home in the estuary the ship can be moved these are poor excuses for delaying sensible economic development of a much blighted area of the thames estuary.
fits well in context almost classical in proportions and form the rotunda seen over roof tops most elegant
i completely support these views, we must make it easier for talented women architects to follow through their careers in a fulfilling way that will ultimately benefit society. we must lead the way as a developed nation in a sensible and pragmatic way.
This is great news!, we can all look forward i hope, to a much welcome strategy for the growth of our city...some people will be very busy over the holidays!

This is great news and long deserved credit to a very fine practice who needs bells and whistles in these times. High quality Architecture delight in detial and materials made to last a very long time. it must have been a difficult choice my second would have been David Chipperfield the gallery is a delight and i am sure will win other awards. An excellent turn out displaying UK design talents are very strong!
