An F1 street circuit in London is definitely happening now with the Silverstone thing. i get the feeling they've wanted it to happen for a long time.

finish line on the mall? first corner through mable arch? i dont know. it'll all be awesome.

street circuits are always the most fun in f1. singapore is like one of the newer circuits and it's already a massive favourite.

I bloody hope not. If you saw the Formula E New York race on Sunday, you'll see how poor they actually are. Singapore is okay for a street circuit, Valencia was better. Hopefully Silverstone can agree a new deal, it'd be a shame to lose one of the classic circuits. Imagine losing Spa or Monza.

I agree, losing Silverstone to some pathetic flashy and ultimately soulless street race in central London would be a travesty.

Formula 1 isn't there for your entertainment, it's there to follow the money.

Bouygues and McGee dig one of London’s largest ever holes

http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...st-ever-holes/

Quote:
Bouygues and its specialist contractor McGee Group have completed an excavation in London large enough to contain the Royal Albert Hall.

The hole stretches five storeys below ground to a depth of 28.5 metres and will be home to a NHS high energy proton beam therapy centre to treat cancer.

The Department of Health and NHS England is funding the development for University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

...

The proton beam will be housed in a purpose-built centre on Grafton Way and Huntley Street, along with the largest blood disorder treatment facilities in Europe and a short stay surgery centre.

Spread over nine floors, five above ground and four below, patients will start to be treated at the new centre in 2019.

Outrageous that they are tearing down Sampson House to build such a dull thing.

I think Sampson House is one of the dullest buildings in London.

Abu Dhabi to Help Build 1,000 Apartments in London

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...wers-in-london

Quote:
State-owned Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Co. has formed a venture with U.K. developer Mount Anvil Group Ltd. to build apartment towers next to the ExCel London conference venue, according to two people with knowledge of the plan.

The companies could develop about 1,000 homes on land next to the exhibition center, the people said, asking not to be identified because the agreement isn’t yet public. The venture hasn’t yet applied for approval to build on the land, which is currently used for parked vehicles, the people said.

...

Developers have been focusing on London’s outer districts, where cheaper prices mean potential purchasers can benefit from government assistance to buy homes.

Construction began on about 7,000 homes in the U.K. capital during the second quarter, a 42 percent increase from a year earlier, according to a report by Molior London seen by Bloomberg News.

This is less about being adjacent to the Excel and more about having forthcoming Elizabeth Line station nearby, which offers direct connections to; Canary Wharf, City of London, West End and most importantly Heathrow Airport. Pity the presence of a particular provincial airport, which hints the regeneration of vast area in Zone 3.

You need an extremely developed taste in architecture in order to appreciate brutalist buildings, for most of us it just doesn't come along, no worries. Luckily for you there are plenty of fancy boxes going up all over the place.

Will be saying the same about Post Modern era buildings in lets say 20 years time, given that many structures of this era have already achieved listed status looks like that's happen earlier that i'd thought it would.

Yeah, right.

Usually, the only people who appreciate brutalism do so from a great distance and never have to live nor work in such environments.

Brutalism was/is architecture conceived by the 'intellectual' left wing and was an attempt at social engineering, which is why it was such a monumental failure.
