@SE9: I like how your second image gives the appearance that the classical style portico of the Metropolitan Tabernacle appears to be the grand entrance to the rising residential tower!

I think I've started following this thread after any potential debate on the Tate Modern extension, what's the consensus here (or the different views) on it?

I think the tate moderns extention is generally liked. I love the shape and that its in brick, its a monumental building! Neo bank side behind slightly detracts from the view of it from certain angles though.. imo.

it's funny, I'd have to say my favourite piece of architecture in Canary Wharf is a largely underground public transport station, courtesty of Foster, and my second favourite piece of architecture in Canary Wharf is a largely underground public transport station, courtesty of Foster.

I'm just not sure what order they're in yet.
