Foster's Egg

What an amazing structure they are proposing for the Greater London Authority Assembly Building.

But it now seems to me that Foster & Partners are rapidly turning into a "mannerist" version of themselves producing ever more elaboarately shaped buildings to prove technological superiority.

Maybe but it is good to see someone pushing themselves even if there is an element of stealing Future-Systems cloths. When you consider that this will be London's equivalent of Dublin's Civic Offices it makes you think that there was a missed or only partly seized opportunity here in Dublin.

yah, sure its nothing new. A person in my class in college did something very similar in 4th year.
Maybe its modelled on Norman's head?
