Originally i didn't like it , how was it going to fit in with the dross that's there currently. However to be greeted with an design like that , as you emerge from the tube to Paddington Basin would be a welcomed change.

It will also open up that side of Paddington Basin that's been impassable since the 1960s , it will also improve the view you would get if looking at 31 London Street.

I'm glad it's got an overall warm reception, I'm still not too sure. The cross-bracing is a bit messy for me , however I'm looking forward to seeing it in the flesh.

Gatwick Boosts New-Runway Case as Single Strip Serves 40 Million

London Gatwick airport’s passenger tally surged beyond 40 million last year, with a jump in long-haul flights from its sole runway bolstering claims that the facility could become a major hub if granted the right to build a second landing strip.

Passenger numbers at Gatwick, which was already the world’s busiest single-runway airport, advanced 5.6 percent in 2015, outpacing a 2.2 percent gain at London’s main Heathrow hub. Both facilities are effectively operating at the limits of existing infrastructure, with little scope for more flights.

U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron said in December that the government accepts that southeast England needs more airport capacity, while postponing a decision on where a runway should be built until after London’s mayoral election in May.

The delay has given Gatwick fresh hope after a state-appointed committee last year endorsed Heathrow as clearly the best site for growth.

Long-haul services spurred gains in 2015, Gatwick said Wednesday, led by a 12 percent jump on North Atlantic routes, with Las Vegas and Los Angeles boosting passenger numbers 50 percent in December. Toronto also piled on travelers, as did services to winter sun destinations including Goa, Jamaica and Barbados.

Southbank is gunna have a cool cluster when all these towers are topped out. With these new clusters going up in central London in and around the city cluster it won't be long until thry merge into one big downtown skyline. There's the southbank/blackfriars cluster, the broadgate cluster, the Shoreditch cluster, the city road cluster and of course the city of london cluster, plus all the residential towers going up around it in Aldgate.
The COL/central London alone will be a good skyline. The cluster will need a new name tho, as the COL merges with its surrounding clusters, maybe get rid of the cluster tag alltogether and just call it the 'downtown'. Similar thing is happening in canary wharf/wood wharf/docklands/greenwich as its becoming one big sea of towers. There will still be individual clusters tho, in nine elms, stratford, Croydon, elephant and castle etc.

Has it always been the case that 95% of architectural projects are this awful?

No chance of central London (or at least its skyline) as an entity being referred to as 'downtown'.
