Will Alsop's design for Barnsley. . . will it inform the public or is it all too abstract?

  • Comment

Regarding Will Alsop's prizewinning RA model (AJ 5.6.03).

May I ask whether the model is to convey information to the people of Barnsley as to the future of their neighbourhood, or is it only for those versed in signature sloping columns and bright coloured abstractions? Depending on the answer to that will be the answer to the question: 'Are just the blobby bits meant to be bollocks, or is it all a load of them?'
