  • Comment on: Latest listing bid for Robin Hood Gardens fails

    Frirish's comment 4 August, 2015 1:41 pm

    It would be a sad day if it got knocked down. I've lived near it for years, and think its an amazing piece of architecture, I love walking around it. It makes me question the listing process, when so many lesser building across London, and numerous Georgian & Victorian houses with very little difference can be granted listing. Yet here we are, being told Robin Hood Gardens has nothing unique to offer that other buildings haven’t done before, and for that reason it cannot be protected. I can only assume that political pressures to avoid protecting such a large piece of prime land, so near to Canary Wharf must be having an influence somewhere along the line.

    Lior Brosh - seeing some of your past comments, I find it hard to see how you don't have an agenda of your own.

  • Comment on: RIBA overturns controversial Israel motion

    This just proves how weak and ineffective the RIBA's influence is, though the vote clearly had backing from within, they were forced to change their opinion due to outside influence (and most likely outside funding threats). The RIBA is meant to stand up for British architecture and its values and to uphold a standard of Ethics, and promoting them worldwide is most definitely a valuable thing to do. They have every right to express their disproval of another country Architecture body if deemed to be acting in an unethical way. Whether that is in Israel or any other country acting unethically. I wouldn’t want the RIBA to recognise any institute that agrees to build on disputed territories.
