New buildings for the bbc will embrace transparency and allow the public to see broadcasters at work, it emerged last week. The news came as the corporation's board of governors began considering proposals to erect a new building on its White City site in London to compensate for the potential loss of space when the lease on Bush House, the BBC's World Service building, runs out in 2005. 'We want new buildings to have a sense of letting the public see what we are doing,' property spokeswoman, Jane Futrell, said. 'We've got a feeling that we're living in bunkers at the moment.' At the end of last month the governors were handed a series of property proposals, called 20/20 Vision, which includes the White City plan and ideas on how to improve existing workspaces. Alsop & Stormer, degw and Foster & Partners are among the architects under consideration for future bbc work (aj 10.2.00).
