Evan Davies?? He's barely made a contribution to broadcasting let alone architecture...
Comment on: Levitt Bernstein and Burwell Deakins complete latest phases in UCL’s campus transformation
Interesting to compare to the similar recent scheme at the V&A, with the Levete courtyard. Have to say on paper (screen) this appears the better of the two.
On even a fleeting examination of the Island recently, compared to a dozen years ago when I knew it far better, it's hard to believe ANY planning controls are being applied. It's ironic that the LDDC saw far less built, and rather sad in a way to see the very earliest generation of buildings there used as sales pavilions for their replacements. On the other hand, the trees planted thirty years ago are far more mature and often obscure much of that era.
