Comment on: Academics put pricetag on 'distinctive design'
I must agree with Mr Zogolovitch, this study relates entirely to conservation areas and is essentially a town planning study. It gives no clue as to the benefits of 'very distinctive' new architecture within the townscape.
It may simply encourage further conformity within existing conservation areas and the introduction of further conservation areas- with more input from planners who are relatively untrained in architecture.
I agree with Chris Medland on this. Well said.
As for high rise in the City, I guess this is what keeps the City rich and able to support all sorts of activities- such as Hampstead Heath, etc,etc,etc. Some wise people set up the strategic views of St Paul's years ago and the City seems to be sticking to those.
