  • Comment on: Frank Gehry dropped from World Trade Centre job

    Alex Seymour's comment 8 September, 2014 9:37 am

    No doubt Gehry's stand against Israel's settlement building and his withdrawal from the ;Museum of Tolerance' project that is obliterating an historic (and sacred) Muslim cemetery in occupied Jerusalem has something to do with the decision.

  • Comment on: Preview: London Design Festival

    A good reason to take the first Eurostar south.

  • Comment on: Revival of Alsop's Supercity? Osborne unveils HS3 vision

    Alex Seymour's comment 24 June, 2014 10:04 am

    I don't like the bit about "could be built for less if it used existing lines". Reminds me of the suggestion by one politician a few years back that some money could be saved by using the northern spur of the Circle Line to carry Crossrail under central London. If we are to have HS3 then let it be state of the art and not some hotchpotch of lines shared with the Trans Pennine Express and East Coast Main Line.

  • Comment on: Fosters' partner hits out at 'lack of vision' over new Thames Estuary airport

    Alex Seymour's comment 20 June, 2014 12:05 pm

    To get buy-in from this Islamophobic government for the Estuary Airport, Foster and Partners need to stress the security advantages of having an airport in such a remote spot from such viewpoints as facilitation of a state of the art missile defence curtain plus a sophisticated 8 metre high surrounding concrete wall and sufficient space in the surroundings to incorporate a nearby Army and RAF base permanently on standby. As the whole project would be a golden opportunity for Israeli security firms to earn millions in consulting fees the whole project will be a no-brainer which will waltz through Parliament in no time.

    Is it possible they built it upside down by mistake?
