I can't believe how long the Tate Modern extension is taking to be clad.

It is taking an awfully long time, isn't it?

But then I'm very confident it is going to turn out to be an incredible addition to the fabric of london. The plasticcy cladding buildings that shoot up in a tenth of the time, not so much. Bit of a Guinness slogan situation, this one, I reckon.

Manhattan Loft Gardens.

I can't believe how misleading this render is, the tower is fine but immediate environs is complete fiction.





What is difficult to see is that the area has quite a steep slope. In the render it is depicted as level. I presume the walk illustrated angles from the T-junction through what is now the Get Living London pavilion yet there is no sign of the DLR entrance or canopy from Stratford International.
Caveat emptor, so much for trading standards.

It's taking ages! But I'm sure it's going to certainly be worth it.

It's a universal pathology of render culture, isn't it? I find it particularly funny when they radically gentrify an ethnic / decrepit neighbourhood. Don't they think that the higher the difference between reality and render, the more disappointed the potential buyers will be? Unless you sell to international investors who don't come and don't care, which in fairness may often be the case, but it happens also where it isn't.
