Re: Re: Revamp of King John’s Castle
For me the frame with its diagonals gave the modern pavilion a barricaded look, which would suggest to the passer-by that it was part of the castle complex.
I’d imagine the diagonals are necessary supports because the foundations of the pavilion would not be allowed to disturb an archaeological site.
The long pavilion hovers over the remnants of mines and countermines from the various sieges and who knows if they are all accounted for?
As for painting them grey?
I sure the grey colour compliments the limestone on a bright day but after weeks of typical heavy overcast weather, a bit of white could cheer up the pavilion for the visitor.
The use of white colour on the river projects has in my opinion been positive too.
