    Try the fantastic short movie '56000 - A Film about Preston Bus Station' by Andrew Wilson & Paul Adams https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPVSV02Pz7c

  • Comment on: Public inquiry launches into Simpson's 'stunted black glass stub'

    Robert. There is already a generous basement link between main public areas, without compromising the spatial integrity of the walk. This is/was one of the best and most unique spaces in Manchester which has now been stolen from the public realm.

  • Comment on: Housing minister Brandon Lewis calls for more ‘bungalow love’

    How quaint! Good to know the solution to the housing crisis will be suitably 'folksy' for the Telegraph reading voters. Perhaps we could build them in, I don't know...Garden Cities, or something?

  • Comment on: Stephen Lawrence Centre has ‘failed’, says Adjaye

    Triangle Architects's comment 19 August, 2014 6:19 pm

    How refreshing that someone as renowned as David Adjaye can admit to and reflect on design failure. I don't know the scheme well, but it appears to be more of a failure in the public realm design and perhaps a lack of social activity and public supervision than the building itself? Is there any other reason why this building would be a more attractive object for attack than any other with a glazed facade?

  • Comment on: RIBA backs building on greenbelt

    Triangle Architects's comment 2 July, 2014 11:42 am

    Hear hear, Paul Finch. Unfortunately politicians always want an easy answer - greenbelt, garden cities (haha) etc. What better case for investing in 'design' than shaping our cities? It all seems a bit too complicated! The Urban Task Force seems all but forgotten, Maccormac's Sustainable Suburbia http://www.sustainablesuburbia.co.uk/ is hardly known.

    Planning standards need to allow higher densities in urban and sub-urban housing (not just flats) and change outdated approaches on overlooking distances, building height, parking spaces/sustainable transport, etc whilst demanding more intense green infrastructure. Land must work harder and more sustainably before other options are entertained. We will never get the greenbelt back!
