The Penny Brook is absolutely beautiful! I can easily see it becoming a new monument for London. Do we know what the exact height will be?

It's like Gaudi-meets-Seifert with a hint of Niemeyer. Too bad it wasn't planned in a more noticeable location.

If they really put effort into it, it could be London's building of the decade.

Lets see how it turns out because early renders, before the value engineers get to work on it, tend to be about as reliable and trustworthy as the Paris thread count.

That's exactly my thought. Great building and design but the I'm afraid it just wont get noticed.

Perhaps it'll be a nice architectural moment in a sea of mediocrity.

That Crossrail tunnel is beautiful architectural symmetry (Instagramers are going crazy for it).

I really think this is going to be an amazing success.

Hope they just get rid of that messy fence around the forecourt which seems to be doing little other than obscure the effect of the magnificent arched piers.

Other than that, it looks stunning. Easily one of the best-looking designs out there at the moment - but, agree, hope it doesn't get too compromised along the way. And a shame it isn't somewhere a bit more prominent.
