I think Mr Shuttleworth needs to take a crash course in humility. His assertion that his gimmicky and rather average building is a 'sea change' is conceited and deluded whilst his apparently untrue comments about Peter Foggo are bordering on offensive.

'Streets in the sky' eh? Havent we been here before?
Those visualisations could be straight out of the 'Traffic in Towns' Buchanan report from 1963. Bad idea then - bad idea now. Quite apart from the idiocy of destroying this magnificent structure.

I actually helped to get the Health Centre listed so this is very heartening for me to not only see its reuse and restoration but also a really good bit of new architecture to complement it.
