Twist of Foster not fooling CABE

  • Comment
The controversial Ealing Arcadia scheme is proving you can’t just add a dash of stararchitect to an existing design-team cocktail and make an instant hit.
Developer Glenkerrin had hoped that throwing in a cheeky twist of Norman Foster to the existing mix of HKR Architects and John Pardey would help the huge west London scheme through planning.

However CABE has again ‘slammed’ the project, for 700 flats and 2,250m2 of shops in Ealing Broadway, saying it ‘remained unconvinced by the proposals’ and that the area deserves better.

The design watchdog said the team had done little more than ‘tweak’ the project since the last time it came before the review panel in October 2007 (ajplus 8.11.07).
