The more I think about this decision, the more I want to kill somebody.
This stretch of the Quays is all about a series of individual ‘palazzos’ from the Sunlight Chambers down to the Clarence. If they had wanted to make a contemporary statement and they were confident that Foster could deliver a building of the quality that would justify the demolition of the four late Georgians beyond the existing Clarence, that would have been a better option IMO. A contemporary palazzo, designed by Foster, extending the series, I could go for that.
Total demolition of some of the site would be preferable to 95% demolition of all of the site.
