The original concept of a building in the water was lost for fairly obvious reasons of cost and practicality. Is it now anything more than an object placed on dry land with a pool? Function also seems somewhat constrained if the comments are anything to go by. Like that other V&A recent work by AL_A will it prove to be more than a gesture?

Chamberlain Powell and Bon designed Clasp buildings for St Paul's School Barnes SW London are being removed one after another. Might they have been candidates for listing once?
