Can't we just get rid of this intrusive monster on London's wonderful river, and save everybody a hell of a money better spent elsewhere?
Apart from Boris's usual obfuscation about the process the most disturbing aspect of this response is that he believes it should become a precedent for future projects! Surely an even stronger reason for investigating it thoroughly.
A great loss, but wonderful that he had the opportunity to return to the Brunswick Centre and make it the vibrant place he had originally intended it to be!
But surely a mistake to refer to it as"Brutalist"?
Incidentally Colin St John Wilson was also VERY closely involved with Patrick and Prof Martin in Harvey Court. Credit where credit due, especially in the AJ!
The Mayor should forget the Garden Bridge and put his (our) money on this one!
How many low level bridges could we afford for the cost of that pointless, vanity project called The Garden Bridge?
Thomas should ditch the Garden Bridge and concentrate on delivering this!
What a pity that such a talented designer as Thomas Heatherwick gets so caught up by his own involvement in this ridiculous project that he literally can't see the wood for the trees. How on earth can this lumpen mass of concrete and greenery, dumped in the heart of the Thames "open up views and spaces in London that normal people have never seen before"? On the contrary, for those "normal people" it will block the very views from Westminster, Hungerford and Waterloo bridges that are such an intrinsic part of experiencing the Thames and London.
Just remember that the members shouldn't be made to feel like second class citizens in their own building because of it being used for corporate events.
Let us hope that SAVE can bring Edinburgh to their senses to stop in their tracks both of these potentially disasterous schemes.
I agree with Robert Wakeham .Pity the architects involved in two such indefensible schemes. Has Edinburgh lost the plot?
