Press discussion on the question of tower blocks in London shows no sign of abating. Commentators like Simon Jenkins (Evening Standard) and Giles Worsley (Daily Telegraph) declare their opposition to the very idea of more towers in the wake of the NY terrorist attack. It needs to be understood that their objection to towers has little to do with terrorism but a lot to do with the fact that they hate towers because they are just too, well, modern . If the terrorists had attacked cathedrals, would they be arguing that we shouldn't build any more of those?
