To Quentin or not to Quentin?

  • Comment
That much-loved children’s illustrator Quentin Blake – who brought the books of Roald Dahl to life and managed, in his imaginings of classic character Mr Twit, to create a beast remarkably similar to Astragal himself – has, rather unexpectedly, been given a role in Argent’s King’s Cross regeneration masterplan. Blake is working with the developer to create a massive drawing to cover up a dilapidated building, Stanley Building South, on the edge of the masterplan site. Argent told local planning officers that the building ‘detracts from the quality of environment and world-class gateway now being put in place,’ so Blake has been asked to create an artistic screen featuring an ‘imaginary welcoming committee’. So Astragal wonders – which buildings would you like ‘to Quentin’? Leave your comments below...
