Comment on: How can we improve London’s emerging Skyline?
I nearly wept when The Guardian recently published a photo of the Paris skyline. Not a single tall building in sight!
London's skyline has been seriously compromised on so many fronts, with such a disastrous impact on so many views that now no longer exist.
Of course we need densification, but not scattered, apparently randomly, and not with unco-ordinated starchitect buildings competing by histrionics with one another and with the grain of the existing city.
I don't know why no one ever tends to remember the impact on men after having children. It is generally accepted that men would return to work after paternity leave; it seems unthinkable that they may want to work part-time as well as they may want to spend some time with their child! This scenario did happen to us, and we offered part-time and flexible working options to both our male and female staff.
