It’s quite natural looking in a strange crystalline way. Unfortunately it ‘s also heavy and bloated looking too. You’re right – Las Vegas. The other design is far more beautiful and will look really bizarre and kitsch in a couple of decades.

It’s funny though – models and conceptual artwork can be so misleading can’t they? Something about the lightness of a sketch or watercolour. The Woodquay buildings looked lovely in the original drawings too. Really transparent, light and airy looking. I suppose that’s the danger when it comes to the untrained eye – like my own. They create a gossamer illusion; unless you keep reminding yourself that it’s mostly concrete and stone.
