The DCC/Sean Harrington/York Street scheme is up for shaving in the current 'ARCHITECTURE' (RIAI journal)! The piece is by a Dr. Jonathan Hale, who hales from Nottingham.
Normally RIAI feature reviews are so sweet and sugary, reading too many of them would rot your eyes, but low! . . . . along comes a sugar-free review, even incorporating a couple of mild rebukes:
[INDENT]''Compositionally the elevations adopt the principle of expressing each apartment as a distinctive unit, which in some areas - particularly on Mercer Street - results in a slightly fragmentary collage of competing forms. The more sober and taught plane of the longer York Street frontage strikes a much happier balance of size and scale . . . ''[/INDENT]
I could be waiting six months for someone to point out that this not a dissimilar view to that expressed by gunter above, so I'm just going to point it out myself
In the same publication, the RIAI president's column cuts loose and carries out a high school shooting that leaves 'Luddites', [I][I]the[/I] 'angst ridden', 'Jahadists', 'Eco Artistos', 'suited proles', 'contrarians', 'neo cons' [I]and[/I] 'Evrironmental Athesists'[/I] strewn about the place in the ensuing slaughter, . . . outstanding stuff, but we'll deal with this in the appropriate place.
