Re: Re: Henrietta Street
Before I knew which one was the winner, the brick one got my vote. I do think the ‘side’ is over-detailed, but I like the blind ‘front’. Also, as noted by the Assessors, the use of this building was thought about, unlike many of the others which proposed ‘museum’ or ‘gallery’ etc. (I’d read their comments, but didn’t know to which building they referred.)
This competition also highlights yet again how inappropriate and insensitive the corner building on Bolton Street is.
gunter- neatdesign’s blog seems to suggest that the exhibition is only on until Friday. I presume that means until close of business on Friday, unlike a certain other architectural exhibition discussed on here recently.
Graham- what do you mean about the parapet rebuilding? Not sure I follow you. Ta.
