Headline

Hodge refuses to list Birmingham Central Library

Comment

Hodge is clearly an arrogant idiot with no regard for the balanced professional opinions offered. She is not fit to hold the position she does. This just makes a mockery of the system. This is a fabulously civic and bold piece of architecture, by a local practice and the best building in the city. But it seems Birmingham now has to be coated in a layer of hideous, fatuous, shallow, facile, un-intellectually stimulating 'contemporary' gestures to encourage us to spend ourselves happy. Can we please also question the sustainable argument for removing a perfectly functional, servicable building with huge embodied energy well before the end of its life cycle. Complete insanity. I, for one, will be there chained to it if the bulldozers ever get near it.
