David Adjaye says ‘disrupting’ the park is key to his Holocaust memorial thinking


Victoria Tower Gardens seem already to be suffering from being treated as a convenient bit of spare land in which to deposit things - at the wider north end, between the monument to Emmeline Pankhurst and the river, the Gardens appear to have been gnawed away to create the sedum-roofed linear 'barrier' building apparently housing parliamentary visitors' facilities (possibly illustrated in the AJ, though I can't remember it) This building also serves to inadequately screen the mess behind, adjoining Black Rod's garden, and the cynical among us might see this as a fair representation of what's going on within Parliament just now, as well as displaying contempt for the integrity of the gardens. Adjaye isn't alone in causing disruption to the park.
