  • OK, I’m aware that this may not earn me friends given that Dezeen has many architects who are far more knowledgeable, but…

    ‘…the French architect has pointed out that his new design will attempt to weave a dialogue with history rather than dominate the area with a purely auto-referential language.’

    Obviously balancing the developers desire for max square metres of saleable space.

    Well, when I look at the building I think the developers won.
