Anti-tower stance will create ‘shorter and fatter' buildings, says NLA chief


We are a funny lot. We want to preserve our countryside at the same time as our cities skylines, something has to give. Nimbyism is still the issue and that will never change. It’s sad to think that those wishing to live and work in our cities are denied access as others fight to protect the status quo. From my view out of my office window in Hong Kong, the skyline is a myriad of beautiful buildings and not so beautiful buildings juxtaposed in no perceptible rhythm or plan but the city works on many levels. I would rather read that the £60m public park and underground entrance were the cause of public consultation in relation to how they will be enjoyed and how they will benefit the local community. London thrives on its diversity and quality of architecture and tall buildings should be a part of this. Written by Richard Dorkin as a personal view.
