Yes it's the definitive award in the industry.

Things can be discussed a little further in the aviation section.

Yes, for those who awarded it. But this is a forum, and people give their own opinions.

No, definitive in the industry.

This is also a forum where people educate the uninformed and dismiss trolls with facts and information.

You've given your opinion regarding T5. The world has given theirs. If you wish to discuss the terminal further, here's where to go: LCY/LGW/LHR/LTN/SEN/STN | London Area Airports

I was aware of the award as I follow Skytrax. You guys seem to not discern between fact and opinions.

Anyway, this will be my last post in this thread, as its purpose is clearly becoming more and more showing off, rather than discussing, and the debating skills of you guys only include appeals to ridicule.

Indeed. My concern about SSC in general. It turned from a laidback casual forum allowing opinions on everything to a mere fancy picture show. You're facing the same issues anywhere once you attempt at getting into real conversations, even in sole discussion threads/forums.


That being said, SE9 of course is doing some awesome work here. Tough I'm a little worried he's left all alone in posting updates at this international London thread.
Btw, the V&A Museum is magnificent! The kind of decent modern extension I truly appreciate.

  • Regarding the 'showing off' remark - this thread is a showcase of London's projects and construction updates. When you click on it, that's what one should expect.
  • If a forumer trolls this thread with continuous negative/dismissive (sometimes bordering on ridiculous) comments about London, its bridges, airports, stations (etc) then they should prepare to be schooled.
  • This is the World Development News forum. If you'd like to engage in prolonged architectural conversation, there's an architecture forum for you to enjoy.


I have no problem updating this thread, the information is at my fingertips.

You have to be even a little bit ignorant to ignore the fact that London Waterloo isn't just some irrelevant little station!

Great to see the V&A extension beginning, when I was last in London in that area they'd be tarting up the outside. Great museum the V&A, it's weird so many different styles have been combined within one building so you can go in through a grand entrance into a very modern entrance hall which leads you to look at a gift which was presented to Victoria from one of our former colonies!
