English Heritage recommends Broadgate for Grade II* listing


If this is the future of office buildings please advise all that have the misfortune to work in it or look at it, to sign up for therapy now, there is going to be a very long queue. Clearly MAKE believe that the Carbuncle Cup is the only worthwhile architectural award and having been robbed in 2009, they are clearly making an early pitch for 2014. Does the Client really like this? The planning authority must refuse it. It lacks all the finesse of a punch in the face. What about the loss of public realm? Redevelopment should strive to improve on what is there, this is a monumental step backwards. Everything about this is what gives architects a bad name! I feel like chucking it all in, what’s the point, truly depressing, how do these idiots get the commissions, there are actually some good architects out there that never get the chance!!!!!! Open competition anybody?
