A bad project is a bad project, regardless of what else is going on.

If they matched the cladding with the cheesegrater, that could be a salvageable design. Especially if something similar goes up at the Undershaft project.

Otherwise, that's one big yawn.

That's an old working model and not the final design.

The old Marble Arch Tower is far better than that new shit. Why do they have to make everything so quirky and playful? It's almost like you could never tell London was once the capital of an empire that ruled half the world.

Apparently this is not the final design, this is a old design .

I think this building is still better than what it would replace.

At least the old Marble Arch Tower is an ubiquitous old school International Style tower. The replacement literally sticks out like a sore thumb, and the random window placement on the base is awful.

The window sizes follow a pattern, as opposed to being randomly placed.

I still struggle to understand how Vinoly continues to be given projects in London. Nutter!
