  • Bernard Humphrey-Gaskin

    Good question... ??

  • Aliza Kara

    That's nice to hear from an architect, I don't understand why this man's work warrants an OBE.

  • Bernard Humphrey-Gaskin

    Well it's the person that gets the OBE. But I only query the planning permission aspect of the project, not because of the stark design approach, which I can appreciate if it is right for the design concept and project values. It is very difficult to get planning approval, for such a radical project that appears initially to be totally out on context with it's surroundings, so hence I too query how such a project gets planning. I often struggle against all odds with the planners to get a less radical scheme approved, and yet this stark design gets approval.

  • Mike Braum

    Because it doesn't block the view of St Paul's. :) I was told that that is why there are such crazy shaped buildings in London

  • Aliza Kara

    More likely the developer bribed somebody
