V. interesting position Rory. Congratulations and good luck with it.
Beautiful water colour of a frankly graceless building.
Very sad indeed. Students and fellow travellers in architecture if you want to know how to devise, make, draw and create a convincing plan and section have a look at ABK. Any project really.
I'm happy to look at that too. Chlorinated chicken eh ? Yum yum. But hormone injected beef..you've taken that too far.
.....and surprising. "Greek ship owners bathroom 1970" is the President's usual style preference.
Not often? Really? I find that very hard to believe.
Yes, I believe so. Anyone interested in context, setting and in Edinburgh should put "Ribbon Hotel Edinburgh" in any search engine and compare.
It's no surprise that the Architectural Heritage Society of Scotland objected, that organisation is still rooted in the 18th century. The idea that Chipperfield's concert hall would "tower over" Dundas House was ridiculous. It's difficult to imagine a concert hall more respectful of its context and setting or a team more capable of delivering a world class venue..
However, I thought that Nuveen Real Estate's primary objection concerned service access, but apparently, according to the Times it's so that a 360 degree view from their ribbon hotel can be preserved. Not only surprising but bizarre given that it's difficult to imagine a building less respectful of its setting and context, ,y,know in my view .
Excellent. Great architect, v. talented practice team. Good luck

Beautiful work, clear drawings, well considered plan, clever details. Inspirational stuff. In Scotland too, gets better and better.
