http://www.auburn.edu/~faustrl/

Robert Faust an architecture professor in Alabama, probably a vision/project from the sixties or seventies. It says nothing about London or an architect named Francon.Weird thread...

-Firstly a 15s tower would not be "one of London's tallest"
-Google did not have any matches for "Kingston Villa Suites" or "New London Enquirer"
-I can't find any references to an architect named Jean Francon
-The photos appear quite old
-The website they are from lists this as a "hypothetical proposal" amongst small and quite old projects from southern USA.
-Lastly that thing is hideous

Take your chiseled physique elsewhere GGG

mate are you actually gay or just obsessed with other male bodies.... if you wanna make people think you're toned get your flabby gut down the gym... rather than posting dead proposals from the fifties in order to repeatedly post a picture of some guy you fancy.

I quite like it. Some colour pictures of it would be nice thoug, and it should be built somewhere out of the way, just incase, if it gets built at all.

Don't jack off in my topic.
Why are you so curious of my sexual persuasion? Are you coming on to me? Are you attracted to my pecs and rock-hard abs? And for your information, that is me you are looking at, you little shit. You only wish you had my body, bitch.
