Stirling Prize winner picked for £1.2bn Silvertown Tunnel project


For me its black and white - something is either sustainable or its not. Even if the designers make this as sustainable as remotely possible, it is still not sustainable. This is a project that is based on an old economy that no longer exists - I wouldn't be at all surprised if it gets binned after several hundred million pounds are spent. I think Sadie Morgan is one of the best architects of the past two generations and this one. Despite this I would have thought that anybody on the National Infrastructure Commission board and the practices that they represent should not have any involvement in projects that the board has an influence over - to me this is common sense and should be a prerequisite for being on the board in the first place.
