Astragal First fence

Another John Simpson project, also backed by the Prince of Wales, has bitten the dust before getting started. He was one of three finalists in the competition to design a set of memorial gates at Hyde Park Corner, but didn't make the cut. Runner-up in the competition is Will Alsop; the winner is the former architectural adviser to John Gummer, Liam O'Connor. Classicism, apparently, still rules.
