Olympicopolis mark II: reworked plans for east London cultural hub revealed

Comment

If you look at the smaller buildings individually they are actually quite interesting. However they are competing with one another completely overshadowed by the monstrosity that is the UAL building in the middle. There is so much wrong with it it completely takes away any merit of the smaller buildings. Its too big, the massing makes it seem squat even though its 14 storeys tall, not to mention its just unbelievably boring. It looks a copy and paste facade from any of the residential blocks being built in Stratford at the moment by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, PRP, Glenn Howells and the rest. It makes me want to cry. These buildings will date terribly badly, just walk around Statford now and look at buildings built in the last 10 years. People will look back in years to come and wonder what the hell were we thinking.
