The Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment has slammed tp Bennett's £400 million design for an overhaul of London Bridge Station (aj 24.2.00) and recommended that Railtrack brings in an outside consultant architect to help turn the project around. cabe's design review panel last week said the architect's proposed concourse to replace a listed terminus train shed was too much like 'an anonymous shopping mall', that public areas were 'not generous enough', that the design of the north and south of the new concourse was 'weak' and that not enough attention had been paid to connections to Borough High Street. The committee did 'strongly support the strategic thinking behind the project' but attacked it for its lack of boldness and clarity, lack of detail on a proposed air rights building and for appearing rushed. The panel also attacked a mixed use scheme by the Architecture & Planning Group (a&pg) at Kingston Mills in Bradford-on-Avon. It branded it 'mundane', excessively dominated by cars, and feeling suburban. It recommends that the local authority open up the project to an invited competition, with the a&pg as one of the teams.
