  • Comment on: Mayor rejects ‘unwelcoming, poorly designed’ Tulip

    Paul Finch's comment 16 July, 2019 10:11 am

    Garden Bridge scrapped by a mayor who supported it before he was elected; Rotherhithe pedestrian/cyclist bridge scrapped before it even started; two stations scrapped at Old Oak Park; no plans for a replacement west of the failing Hammersmith Bridge. BUT mayoral support for vast ungainly Calatrava development at Greenwich Peninsula, and the gigantic hotel development on the Cromwell Road, opposed by all locals and rejected by the local planning authority, whose decision has now been overturned. That is the context for the Tulip decision. It is not a happy one. Not to mention the failing housing policy . . .

    Look at some of the stuff the mayor has recently approved before you take his latest pronouncement seriously. Another sign that London is hitting the miserablist buffers.

  • Comment on: Museum of London reveals latest Smithfield plans as costs rise to £332m

    Paul Finch's comment 1 July, 2019 11:01 am

    It would have been sloppy (and dishonest) to pretend that the cost has not increased when clearly it has. However, given the extra space and volume being incorporated, the cost increase is outweighed by the additional value to be delivered. This makes a refreshing change to the usual story on public projects.

    Simon Sturgis has studied this area intensively and has a methodology for assessing what does or does not make sense in carbon terms. It is the subject of an RICS research report and is on the way to becoming official guidance.

  • Comment on: Drop in BAME architects across UK’s top practices, new data reveals

    Paul Finch's comment 14 June, 2019 9:49 am

    Is anyone interested in class analysis any more -- and how that might correlate with BAME data?
