London's starting to look like Paris more and more when it comes to the 'riff-raff'.

If I look through the city&metro threads of european cities there is normally one awesome project for 2-3 not so awesome or even hilarious projects. London swiched this relation to 2-3 awesone ones for one bad one. In comibnation of mass, size, quality, design and ideas London currently is beyonned comparsion in Europe imho.

PortoNuts' third Redwood Park shot reminds me of Japan. You can almost hear the cicadas.

Victoria Square: Woking

34fl, 28fl residential, 21fl hotel

Woking is a small town in the commuter belt, just South of London. With at least one of the towers likely being over 100m, I think it's deserving a mention here. With a population of under 63000, it will be the smallest town in the UK with a building over 100m





To give an idea of the height, Export House on the right in this diagram is 73m

We'll just overlook the fact that the developers bought off the council with a £100m to build homes for the great unwashed elsewhere rather than within the development shall we, as is currently the requirement under planning rules?

Everyone knows what went on here....

Not too sure about One Tower Bridge..... :-/

Would rather have seen smoothed out glass offices with a cool shape - similar to the offices nearby and City Hall...
