CABE: Parry squares the circle on Paternoster scheme

  • Comment

The tussle between Eric Parry Architects and Sir William Whitfield over designs for the largest building on the £150 million Paternoster Square site looks set to continue despite support for the scheme announced this week by the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment.

In July, CABE attacked Parry's original plans for failing to fit in with Sir William's masterplan, which includes a loggia all around the square. Now CABE has written to Parry to say he has produced 'a better and more coherent scheme without compromising the spirit of the masterplan'.

But Parry is afraid that Whitfield, the developer and the Corporation of London may not accept his new design with a thinner colonnade for the site, which neighbours St Paul's Cathedral.
