It does seems like contributors with different opinions refrain from comment once a strong consensus emerges, or maybe its just that the views of others actually sway opinion ! ? or maybe its just that they don’t want to be verbally battered !

I reckon in this case most are genuinely disappointed with this proposal, there was bound to be strong expectation/anticipation once you hear fosters name.

I always liked the original building & don’t think that any attempt should be made to connect it visually with its neighbours, the ‘sky room’ addition as proposed would reduce its status to infill (IMO!) The existing penthouse additions are too bulky, but half get away with it given the brawn of the original.

This ufo thing could look cool elsewhere, i just don’t think it works here… will still keep a semi open mind until i see further renders (in daylight!) showing views from down the quays, are there no other images floating around ?
