So, Graham Morrison thinks that 'a prerequisite of a good design is that it contributes to its context' (AJ 8.7.04). What a pity he did not put such an admirable precept into practice in the Allies and Morrison design of the new entrance to Fulham Broadway Tube Station.
It has to be the leading contender for the most depressingly anodyne and spineless facade in London, and the one making the least contribution to its context.
That small stretch of the Fulham Road was once attractive, interesting and unique but now it might as well be Milton Keynes or Kansas City. No sense of place whatsoever, just another formulaic design for a retail development.
