Reply To: National Gallery Extension
Devil in the detail…
Would i be the only person that thinks that the traffic lights plonked right in front of the building looks pretty awful & cheap? I think even a simple measure such as painting the grey pole in a gloss, black paint would make it look more visually palitable in its position. An all-black pole/lights may even look like an interesting ‘oddity’ set as it is in front an (all white)contrasting building. This gallery is meant to be ‘national’ building so, the protection/ enhancement of its appearence should not stop at its front door.
