I’m not quick enough at all these days

Here is an image of the cube:

It really does go to show just how distorted renderings can make images, this cube does I think everyone will agree look better in the flesh than the render and I’m sure if the tower existed and the cube was proposed that this relationship would be reversed.

I like Alto Vetro because it is not trying anything complicated and due to its extremely slender profile will constitute a landmark without having the bulk to dominate the surrounding skyline. The two tall buildings at 35 Barrow St will I imagine face extreme difficulty in planning and this is I think more on the basis of fenestration than scale. It will be interesting to see what Dunne comes up with for the former Bolands site.
