  • Comment on: Ellis Woodman: Farrell’s Convoys Wharf will be a citadel for the rich

    Simon Carne's comment 17-Apr-2014 8:24 am

    The irony of Farrell's involvement. An excellent summary of the value of a river frontage and how PTAL has been ignored. Compare and contrast with Old Oak Common PTAL high but no river.

  • Comment on: Heritage row erupts over Chipperfield’s Nobel Centre

    Is it one storey too high? Dominating not respecting its neighbours, could more be placed below ground?

  • Comment on: Make's Leadenhall high-rise scheme wins planning approval

    Simon Carne's comment 26-Feb-2014 11:06 am

    interesting to see Make's work in context of Foster's Gerkin. Teams on each sharing the same members and no doubt the shape justifications for one could equally be applied to the other?

  • Comment on: Zaha, Rogers and Chippo on 'stellar' Crystal Palace shortlist

    Lucy's comments are so sensible but architects just can't resist the thrill of the chase. Also surprising to see who is on the panel of judges. How will their deliberations be recorded in the interests of transparency and openness? At least there are a couple of 'relatively' small practices involved and so - good luck Marks Barfield.

  • Comment on: Cardiff: a city of big ideas

    Simon Carne's comment 7-Feb-2014 9:59 am

    The critical importance of regional transport in the City Region should not be underplayed. Felix rightly points out the scale and population of a South Wales City region, but it is one that is crying out for greater employment opportunities. Transport for the region as a whole is required. Having looked for example at numerous projects large and small across Wales and in particular in the south, my overall impression is that welsh enthusiasm and skill is often denied by the lack of the urbanist's vision for these independent towns and cities who jealously guard their identity, but miss opportunities to work together. By all means celebrate history, culture and individuality but share the proceeds and collaborate.
