The Stage will add a lot of much-needed 'warmth' to the skyline
Corten Steel is one of my favourite materials!

I was reading this thread backwards, and haven't heard of John Tory before, so I had no idea who he was. I was trying to work out what the deal was here, and his name threw me off, thought maybe it was a satirical twitter account mocking Conservatives for being bewildered by the idea of public transport?? but that's a stretch, and even if the theory was correct, that's way too lame for you to post in this thread... scrolled up, no way, Toronto's mayor!?

Funny to see someone from a place like that so openly in awe, I tend to lazily think that all Alpha world cities have their own relatively comprehensive subway/transit. Nice to be reminded how lucky we are

Had a little google and found this article with a bit more info on the visit and his plans for 'copying' crossrail: http://www.thestar.com/news/city_hal...marttrack.html

John Tory is an excellent case of nominative determinism.

Cheers for the article.

London Chinatown Gateway Arch

Anyone noticed the new Chinatown gateway going up on Wardour Street? The Chinatown Association has been pushing for it for a more than a decade. The developers of the W Hotel initially opposed it as damaging the glamorous image they wanted for their building (though imo the M&M store is far more damaging!) There were also problems with the foundations being on soft ground. The compere used to announce the gate's imminent construction every year from the big stage on Trafalgar Square at Chinese New Year. However after a decade of holdups, it's finally happening. The last rendering I've seen is this one. Note the long-gone Swiss Centre building on the right:



Of course there are already three such gates in Chinatown, one at either end of Gerrard Street, and a third on Macclesfield Street, built in the 1980s. However the new arch is hand-carved in Beijing, and is a lot more "authentic", closer in style and scale to the ones in the Liverpool, Manchester, and Newcastle Chinatowns. I believe the carved and painted wood panels are attached to a concrete frame.

Yes I noticed it last week while walking around Leicester Square.

I've noticed it come up, it'll be great for drawing people that don't know the area so well.

A modern collective: PLP architects launch designs for a new housing model in East London


Quote:
PLP Architecture have partnered with Pop Brixton developers The Collective to launch a brand new housing scheme for London. Entitled Stratford Collective, the mixed-use project is planned for the East London town and will include from rental micro-apartments and communal amenities for residents, to a serviced apartment hotel and co-working space.

The new 'micro-housing' model is without precedent in London, explain the architects. Including 300 units of apartments with 12 sq m typical ensuite private space and stylish communal living areas, the Stratford Collective aims to cater for a specific kind of urbanites - young professionals. The building seeks to address the city's critical housing shortage, explain the architects. They spent three years researching and developing the project with their client.

Public space - some open to the wider public too - is very important in the building. Apart from ground level retail space, there will be a dedicated 'raised market' on the 30-storey structure's 22nd floor. Local businesses will be able to set up pop up shops there, brining the vibrancy of the street market into the building, through shops and restaurants. 'The idea behind the project is to take the vitality and urbanity of the street and weave it throughout the building, culminating with an extraordinary public event space in the sky,' explains PLP partner Andrei Martin.

Overall, the team's aim is to provide high quality, design-led living spaces. Services such as wifi, utilities and local taxes will be included, while the hope is for the space to develop into a vibrant local community. Amenities will include a spa, library, screening room, gym and private dinning rooms for residents.

Elegantly spanning just 14 m on its narrow side, the Stratford Collective tower is currently awaiting planning permission. Should this be granted, it will be scheduled for completion by 2018. This is the second project PLP have developed with the Collective. The first one, in west London, is currently in construction with a view to complete in 2016.
