Developer Minerva cannily launched its Grimshawdesigned City of London tower just as the mayor launched his London plan, extolling the virtues of high-rise. Anyone who remembers the 'bouncy castle' design that was previously proposed will appreciate the rethinking undertaken by the firm, producing what will surely rank as one of their best buildings. Who would have thought triangulated forms could prove to be so efficient? The future of the project rests with the planning system, but if this is the standard of design we can expect from spec office schemes, keep them coming.
