RIBA London chairman Simon Foxell has called for the creation of a London Architecture Centre to safeguard the quality of the capital's new buildings. 'Delivering the Vision', the RIBA's response to Livingstone's London Plan, was published last week.The document states the proposals need to be altered in seven areas in order to receive backing from the RIBA.

Foster and Partners' £1 million national police memorial for The Mall in London (above) has won planning approval. Designed in conjunction with Danish artist Per Arnoldi, the memorial will consist of a book listing the names of officers killed on duty, to be displayed in a vitrine within a dark stone wall.

This will make up one side of a rectangular enclosure around a concrete vent shaft. Adjacent to this there will also be a tall glass wall set in a reflecting pool.
