Hospital case

The furore over designs for the Royal London Hospital, with Livingstone and CABE lined up in opposition, makes uncomfortable reading for HOK, which has been forced into producing less than its best, partly as a result of a poor brief and an inadequate site. But PFI client Skanska has not been at its best either; for example, it used designs by Will Alsop as 'design collateral' in the bid to win the megacontract, which must be £1 billion when you include the linked St Bart's project, and promptly dropped him having won the gig.
