Erbse, you should be lucky to live in time with globalisation and internationalisation. nationalism is a collectivism who makes people poor and the architecture of nationalism is the totalitarism of the tyranny. free architecture and free projects is the nature of human mankind.
so, please donīt speak in ideological forms.
London is the one and only city in europe with an international style. all other citys in europe have no modern style projects. Paris and Berlin are ok but London is so much cooler and has more diversity.
And if you donīt like the projects, donīt look at it. let the architects be free.
In the Tradition of the Whigs, we can be proud to see, London is a melting pot for all kinds of architecture.

I disagree with Erbse, but you might be at cross-purposes. I assume he's lamenting the proliferation of International Style buildings - in this case a sort of shorthand for mid-century modernism, since it arguably reached its zenith mid 20th century. E.g. New York's Lever House or Seagram Building.

I partially agree with you. London is probably the european city with the best international style but IMHO is not the only one. Barcelona and Madrid have very good modern style projects, Paris has many interesting projects. Also Moscow has a modern and gorgeous skyline with spectacular skyscrapers taller than London.

nationalism makes people poor ? first of all that's just your opinion, second of all, keep politics out of here for crying out loud.

London needs some filler. Too many buildings trying to be the star and they end up all clashing.
