Heading south

  • Comment

Belly-achers were out in force (again) at the University of Westminster's discussion of Rick Mather's South Bank scheme.

Chairman Max Hutchinson had to deal with querulous Julyan Wickham, who stormed out of the meeting after failing to get a satisfactory response on various points of detail. More positive was praise for the Paul Hyett pedestrian tunnel, which has long been one of Astragal's favourite London projects, and which is now, at least conceptually, part of the Mather proposals. An amazing contribution came from a KPF representative, who called for a major commercial high-rise development on the Jubilee Gardens site - unlikely to find much favour from the team working on the adjacent Shell Centre complex, Bluewater architect Eric Kuhne and Arup Associates.
