I agree with David Farmery. Look at image 16, with the original and revised schemes next to each other. The first scheme was far from wonderful but could have been developed to produce something that had variety and room to breathe within a coherent whole. The new scheme is a catastrophic assemblage of lumpen forms, clashing scales and materials, fussy and at the same time crude. It shouts out that it is a Big Cultural Statement - but is only possible by the grace of Commercial Funding, which relegates civic values and human scale urbanism to the bottom drawer. This project needs to start again
