I don't think it is finished yet.

Well, I was referring to the render. The way the poster said it sounded like he meant the final product, because I don't know of any building under construction looking stronger when its a steel frame.

Embassy Gardens is a bit too massive for my liking. Shades of commie block or 60's housing estate, even if it is brick rather than bare concrete and of a better overall design.

There's no such thing as too massive, there are only bad architects. Embassy Gardens are fine, we need more massive and less tiny.

Of course there is no absolute definition of "too massive". But that doesn't mean that the idea of it cannot exist.

It's an entirely subjective judgement. You think Embassy Gardens is "fine". I don't. Neither of us is more right or wrong than the other.

I think Embassy Gardens uses a lot of ugly proportions.

It won't look so large, relatively speaking, once its neighbours spring-up.

And when the scaffolding comes down. There's a lot to be said for clean lines and geometric symmetry. The renders of these buildings look lean and tight.

East London councils meet to discuss devolution plan
BBC News
13 February 2015
Quote:
Nine councils in east London have met to set out their plan for regional devolution.

Leaders from the borough councils discussed their ideas and started developing a business plan to show how they could take control from central government in key areas.

The boroughs taking part represent 2.5m residents in the capital.

The government said London boroughs had "greater control" than other places, but it was "open to discussions".

Directly elected mayors and leaders from Barking and Dagenham, Enfield, Greenwich, Hackney, Havering, Newham, Redbridge, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest met at the conference.

The group said the current system of government, involving the Mayor of London and London Assembly, had an "important strategic role" but did not take into account the "distinct characteristics" of the east region.

During the conference, held in Newham, issues including housing, employment and social care were discussed as well as the ambitions of the potential partnership.

Sir Robin Wales, Mayor of Newham said: "The Scottish referendum has reignited the debate about the unfinished business of devolution for England's cities and regions.

"It is important that London boroughs, with their distinct and different characteristics, make a major contribution to this debate."

But a spokesman for the government's Department for Communities and Local Government said: "London boroughs already have greater control over their finances through measures such as Business Rates Retention, and greater planning powers for the Mayor.
