I could mention the vastly superior exhibition and events arenas at Greenwich and Royal docks that have been built in the last decade that had really shown the out of date facilities up at Earls Court (which I might add have also been trumped by the nearby Olympia exhibition centre which has also had a lot of money spent on it in recent years) or the massive plans for cultural facilities at Stratford but that wouldn’t fit your narrow narrative now would it
Oh LondonLad you spoil sport - don't ruin this conversation with accurate facts and information - we want hyberbole and guardian comments!

P.s. my apologies SE9 for detracting from your fantastic work on this thread.

No worries! It's worthwhile reiterating that the London area has many projects of cultural value ongoing, including the V&A Museum extension, the Tate Modern extension, the Design Museum, the Battersea Power Station Arts Centre, the Pinewood Studios expansion, the London Paramount park, various elements of King's Cross, various elements of the Olympic Park, the potential concert hall and so on.

I knew it was too good to be true. It seems as if it's now compulsory for every new building built within London to be in a modernist style, or if not new - it must be converted in a way which completely ruins the character of the previous building.

The gaps in he cladding are so horrid, and not in the renders. It can't be the finished product.
