Ground Control: Ellis Woodman looks at how London's towers meet the street


Again an uneducated assault on Strata without investigating the facts, PICK UP THE PHONE and ask the managing agents why the turbines don't go around its an EASY thing to do and has a straight forward answer, again you have neglected to do this. Of course its 'wedged' between the viaduct and Draper House as its foot print is tiny and it fills its site as effectively as possible. Your comment regarding 'permanently overshadowed' is irrelevant, all towers are in their own shadow part of the day, as Strata faces north to the city the open area receives sunlight from the south. which is as to be expected and not a negative in an urban environment. OF COURSE ITS ASSAULTED BY TRAFFIC NOISE! its next to the elephant and castle roundabouts, its not in rural countryside, get a grip man! The planters form seating areas, you have very little long term memory, if you did you would remember what this area was like before. it had the highest crime rate for drug dealing in the UK, by taking out the nooks and crannies and making the area open the crime rates have dropped massively. You need to seriously do some investigation and research before you write your editorials!
