Time for a rethink on economy-led designs?

  • Comment

As the Empire State Building once again became the tallest in New York, the fire marshall was moved to say: '. . . it is made of sturdier stuff than the WTC. . .'

Does this say more about the over-emphasis on economyled design in our current-day structures?

Should the mathematics of profit and the maximising of density outweigh the ability for a man to escape safely, and for a rescuer to stand a chance of survival?

An overly dense and greedy world with an ideological chasm is indeed a dangerous place to be this century, and we must surely rethink.

Gerry Sanderson Wedhampton, Berkshire
