The scalpel is maybe one of the best skyscrapers I've seen. It's not overly tall like almost every other skyscraper being built now but it's design is just so simple and beautiful.

The Scalpel would be much better as a solitary highrise or within Canary Wharf to add some contrast. But in its environment in the City, it's rude and respectless, i.e. fails imho. It seems like it's aggressively taking over the cityscape at this location.

Rude and Respect less? how so? It's opposite the Gherkin, Leadenhall and Lloyds building. It has a glass curtain wall facade, leans out of the way of the view of St Pauls and is only 192m tall.

Old Oak Park | Old Oak Common NW10

Official website: http://www.oldoakpark.co.uk/

London Forum: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1845008

Project facts
  • Developer: London & Regional
  • Residental Units: 7,000
  • Jobs: 8,000
  • An additional base for the Science Museum with educational facilities.
  • Masterplanners: PLP Architecture
  • Transport Improvements: New LO station at Hythe Road alongside 14 new bridges and underpasses



The Science Museum is due to establish a new center at Old Oak Park.

Science Museum to be at heart of Old Oak Park
Standard.co.uk
Thursday 28th January 2016

Quote:
The Science Museum is to establish a major new building at the centre of the redevelopment in Old Oak Common.

The Standard revealed yesterday that Boris Johnson is in talks to bring a “household name” organisation to the west London site, which is currently occupied by the Cargiant used car lot.

Although the identity of the “world-famous cultural institution” has not been officially revealed, senior City Hall sources confirmed it is the South Kensington museum.

The 46-acre site will be turned into a neighbourhood with up to 7,000 homes, known as Old Oak Park, next to the Grand Union Canal after Cargiant moves out in 2021.

A new round of consultation on the plan said the cultural institution will have “education facilities and an outreach programme for schools and the local community, bringing visitors here every day of the year”.

The 500,000 sq ft building will be the anchor for a larger cultural quarter close to a new Overground train station at Hythe Road.

In a video accompanying the consultation, Geoff Springer, director of Cargiant’s property partner London & Regional, revealed that a “museum” would be part of the range of facilities for residents and visitors.

It is known that the Science Museum is looking for a home for its vast unseen archive of 170,000 objects stored at Blythe House in Olympia, which is being privatised by the Government.

The Science Museum shares Blythe House, the listed former headquarters of the Post Office Savings Bank, with the British Museum and the V&A.

In November, Chancellor George Osborne said the Government would invest £150 million to help the three bodies replace “out-of-date museum storage” there with “world-class storage facilities”. The investment would help the museums “move their collections out of storage and on display”.

The vast Edwardian building has 90 store rooms filled with Science Museum artefacts ranging from Stone Age tools to microscopes. Many form part of the collections of the Wellcome Trust on the history of medicine. The vast majority have never been on display.

Last night the Mayor was quizzed by London Assembly members about the identity of the institution referred to in Standard’s report. He joked: “It’s the cable car — it’s going to be moved.”

A formal announcement is expected in late February or early March. No one at the Science Museum or the Mayor’s office was available for comment.

RE Old Oak, I remember that's where QPR the football club were bidding for land for their future stadium, have they found somewhere else to build eventually?

Yep , whose idea of madness is it to put a tall building on this spot

D'oh. Not the height is the problem there, but shape, alignment and position. I examined this further some time ago, if I'll find it I repost, if not, don't mind and be happy about whatever.

I like how the The Scalpel looks like it's hugging the building next to it, in the render. It's the last building people can claim doesn't fit in based on the shape.

You won't see it soon from certain angles anyway.

'D'oh' - I don't think. You criticize the building and make reference to it being a highrise - that certainly implies that you're taking it to task (and least in part) because of height.

Oh, I get it. It is its alignment and position that you think is all wrong. Well, currently, as the alignment of the stars show, Mars, and its associated aggressive connotations, are currently rising in suturn which is in orbit at an angle directly above the the city of london, meaning the whole project must be scrapped, terrible news.
But fear not, Jupiter is currently clearing away the negative connotations from mars, as it sweeps past Saturn's glowing orb, in a precise alignment meaning that just south from london, somewhere on the continent, in, oh i don't know, say, Frankfurt, the planets are aligned just right, what luck, and this tower would fit in perfectly , where it can be enthusiastically praised by the local forumers........Isn't that right, urbse

I completely agree. I can't wait to see this tower rise. I'm really excited to see the quality of the cladding too. I just have a good feeling about it!
