The great ideas and designs of your 'young' charettiers (AJ 03.08.06) show only too starkly the contrasting deadness of the King's Cross Central masterplan, that no amount of cake and doughnuts can disguise.

No wonder all the practices were asked to work on the same site. If they had been let loose on different ones, there would now be a new and far more responsive, far livelier masterplan (and I would guess, given time, a far more interesting exploration of the fabulous potential of the topography of the site).

Instead of being embarrassed by such a prospect, Argent should be emboldened to a major rethink. Ditch the pastiche 19th-century planning and get something wonderful and of now.
