London's future skyline in doubt
Quote:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-20357816

The tallest skyscraper planned for the City of London may never become reality, its lead architect admits - as a BBC investigation raises questions over the capital's future skyline.

Amid the clamour that accompanied the completion of the Shard, something was amiss.

The UK's tallest skyscraper did not have a single financial tenant in place.

It was a far cry from the opening of the Gherkin in 2004 - all of that building's floors had been leased.

Now a BBC Inside Out study has found numerous major developments across the City that have run into problems.

^ Why are they talking about the Shard if the problems obviously are on the site of Bishopsgate? Or did I misread something?

They're talking about the problems around the occupancy of the Shard, saying that many of the floors are yet to be let by companies and businesses - a situation that contrasts with the Gherkin, for example, that was entirely let before completion.

Catching Up With Guys Cancer Centre



Building on the lessons learned from the design of their successful Maggie's cancer centre, Rogers, Stirk, Harbour and Partners has won planning permission for a new Cancer Centre at Guy's.

Based on a triangular site off Great Maze Pond, the 29,000 metre development will be linked to the existing Guy's Hospital via a basement and will stand over the historic "Roman Boat", which is literally a preserved boat found on the site that dates from about 200 A.D, although sadly there are no plans to have the building provide any exhibition space for this national monument.

The purpose of the scheme is to merge the cancer treatment that is currently spread over the entire Guy's campus on to one site. In turn this will free up space elsewhere for additional healthcare facilities.

The concept of the building is based around the idea of "villages". This sees it divided into clusters of floors with their own individual uses, and the differing uses in turn expressed on the facade of the building via the use of different colours. These villages consist of the Welcome Village on the ground and first floors with a café, shops and gym, the Radiotherapy Village on floors two to four, the One-Stop Village on floors five and six for outpatients, the Chemotherapy Village and Kings' Research on floors to seven to nine which combines medical research and treatment in conjunction with Kings' College, with the upper four floors as a private patients unit which have been placed here to allow the NHS facilities to have continuity.

Topping the project are the plant levels and lift cores which are highly visible as one would expect from the designers in question, and provide the building with a summit. For Rogers' firm structural expressionism has never left.

One particular challenge for the building has been the radiotherapy suites. These are the reason why the Radiotherapy Village is on the lowest possible floors, in part due to their weight. The six suites will be lead lined and connected to a single corridor, a more modern approach than the usual concrete bunker approach. Even here patients will have a view down the corridors and outside, a huge change from the basements that most such treatment facilities are situated in.

Dividing the villages above ground level are wrap-around balconies 2.5 metres deep. Corner atria will supplement these to create pleasant spaces following through the idea that architecture and imaginative use of spaces can promote well-being.

Chipperfield Portland House Makeover Unveiled



Land Securities has revealed proposals to renovate and rebuild Portland House, arguably one of the ugliest hundred metre tall sixties towers built in London.

Standing next to Victoria Station and looking like a cheap version of the Pan Am Building, the building created a scandal fifty years ago, and earning royal ire in the process, when constructed due to the fact it was so close to Buckingham Palace.

Land Securities proposals, which have been designed by David Chipperfield Architects, essentially feature lengthening the floor plates on alternative ends of the building and shortening them on the other ends creating sharpened ends with triple aspect views for those apartments. The outer façade will have a more curved look whilst half the top floors will be removed giving a stepped profile that reduces the visual impact of the building from the Mall.

The building will be clad in triple glazing with the external structural columns prominently visible. Cladding for these and the balconies will be stone with the glazing recessed behind them.

Within Land Securities expect to develop 206 new apartments consisting of 15 studios, 43 one bedroom flats, 75 two bedroom flats and 73 three bedroom plus flats. 63 affordable homes will be built off site at Castle Lane.

Connecting with Cardinal Place at the base of the project will be a new arcaded space with the roof garden above Marks and Spencers re-landscaped. Heavy tree planting will be employed to reduce the downdrafts from the tower. This greenery will spread down into the arcade thanks to the positioning of a single mature tree that will be set through a hole in the roof and sat on a platform that allows it to rotate.

The scheme is still at consultation stages, but Land Securities is expected to file a planning application in 2013.
