That's absolutely true and I too hope for something innovative. Especially in that location - it will be the forefront of the skyline from many perspectives.

Can you give some examples of what you'd think would be good for this scheme?

I think the façade and the grounds around the building make the development good! Otherwise it's just a glass box

London mayor swings behind Garden Bridge

Sadiq Khan, the new mayor of London, has given his backing to the Garden Bridge project.

Mr Khan was previously considered to be sceptical about the project, having shared widely-held concerns about the probity of the design procurement process and the structure’s absence from any previous infrastructure needs assessment study.

However, he has now given the project his support – with a few conditions. He wants it to be closed less often for private events, and he wants children to be involved in the gardening.

The mayor said that the bridge “must be a genuinely public and open space for all Londoners, rather than a closed and private space”.

He said: “I expect the Garden Bridge Trust to ensure that the bridge be closed fewer days each year for private fundraising events and fewer hours when they do. I also want a guarantee that an ongoing programme of visits will be laid on for local school children.

“The Trust must also look to build a strong working relationship with parks from all over our city, so that seeds and plants grown on the Garden Bridge can then be replanted in parks across the capital – ensuring it has a positive benefit for all Londoners.

its a good postmodern building, dunno if it should be retained myself. however, this arrangement might work...









Toronto does this practise quite successfully also...

It'll certainly look better once it's fully installed. Hopefully with a complimentary lighting scheme.
