London minister Nick Raynsford

  • Comment

London minister Nick Raynsford was today set to lead a tour of City Hall, Foster and Partners'headquarters building for Ken Livingstone's Greater London Authority on the south bank of the Thames. The 18,000m 2scheme, which has already drawn a mixed reaction from architectural critics, aims to 'express the transparency of the democratic process'. It includes Reichstag-like ramps spiralling up inside the building from a piazza with a cafe at the base, to 'London's living room' at the top of the 'geometrically modified sphere'.
