I don't understand the Scalpel...

Is it just leaning against its core?

I dont think so. Yes, you have right, it looks like an asian Project but for me, i like the picture. In my opinion, there are so much more ugly modern buildings in London than this. Maybe, it is unconventional for you but i dont think, this is the ugliest project of modern art in london. defenitaly not.

Ultimately, it makes no sense to discuss about taste. Everyone has their own, you, like me and everyone else. Carl Menger, the founder of the Austrian School of Economics, has shown this in his works.

Just as a Briton you should be interested in Carl Menger. For England is considered a cradle of freedom, see the old Whigs and the American Revolution. Carl Menger is in this school of thought.

The fire was contained to the Market Hall building. The Stables Market and Union Street were open today.

It has not affected any projects or construction in London.
