Venetian blues

  • Comment

From the outside, the idea of a new modern Venice in London's backyard seems like an interesting design challenge for Britain's architectural community. But can anyone realistically imagine mass housebuilders taking to the idea - it's hard enough getting them to talk to an architect for their normal developments. And if they're not prepared to look at the stilts option, is the whole Thames Gateway experiment doomed already?
