Great article and an equally good building but to describe Darwen as being in a 'remote part of Lancashire' is both untrue and ever so slightly patronising.
I do hope this comment reaches you - i shall put it on the next stagecoach that passes through.
Now you'll have to excuse me - my whippet needs walking and i need to go and scrounge some coal off the slag heaps.
Does anyone seriously think this development is going to happen anyway?
But the Peoples History Museum extension, very prominent in the foreground, is by AS:L
John Lewis clearly didnt think it was a good idea.

Emperor's New Clothes
Restrained and classy.
Nice palette of materials.
‘self-funding, quick-win packages’
'cheap and ill thought out'
£750m on the scheme. £3.75 on the render.
Cynical attempt to get a troublesome scheme through planning as opposed to a real commitment to decent architecture.
Each design has its own merits so wouldnt it be a nice idea to perhaps have a range of designs which reflect the landscape that they go in? Or different geographical regions having their own designs?
‘It is a good scheme and Allies and Morrison has done a pretty good job.'
Hardly a ringing endorsement of both the scheme or the architecture is it? If the developer cant even be bothered to talk it up then it doesn't bode well does it?
What are these people trying to do to me!?!
If the render above, showing the proposed scheme, is anything to go by i think Bradford would be better off sticking with the hole for the time being.
Definition of Grove - 'a small wood, orchard or group of trees.'
Not 'endless and ugly hard paving devoid of any greenery soon to be covered by parked cars'.
As far as the houses go - gimmicky and dishonest masquerading as "well designed and striking".
So it "could appear to undermine his political neutrality" could it?
He obviously doesnt have political neutrality because he is clearly trying to use his influence to dictate policy. Its politics with a small 'p' but politics none the less.
Generic. At best.
Making desperate and angry people that little bit more desperate and angry. That won't have any negative consequences. Will it?
Does anyone else find the comment ‘We would be open to discussions with anyone regarding free schools.’ a bit chilling? Or is it just me?
