Against the grain

  • Comment

Meanwhile, the Foster conception of a wonderfully open and transparent home for the GLA is being compromised by a civil service mentality. Concerned that they should be able to complete their crosswords in peace in their cellular offices, senior staff are demanding to be enclosed with solid materials such as timber doors. What about Foster's idea that offices should be entirely of glass? Only if it is completely opaque, say the GLA bods.

Perhaps the officials have been influenced by the 'wood. for good' campaign, which hit five million television screens in London this week, including a spot duringWho Wants to be a Millionaire.
