Gensler and Snøhetta reveal Portland House extension after Chipperfield axed


I think the idea is to stick the extension on the front and I mean "stuck". To my eyes the two do not "gel together" at all but then I am not an architect. My Dad worked in this building in the 1960s and early 1970s before I worked nearby in the late 1980s and 1990s in Palace Street. I cannot help thinking that this extension will simply make the wind tunnel effects one gets round this part of Victoria even worse.
