they should do a favour to the london skyline and tear it down.
It's a hospital. Are you going to pay for a new one??

There's a nice pretty building going up next door. Perhaps the NHS could use that instead and knock down Guys. Then everyone's happy.

Obviously with all this construction going on, that's not going to happen anytime soon. But I was thinking long term.

That's handy. I seriously need to pay more attention to such details. I thought this tower is located in a different place.

Thanks for the updates.

theres a reclad due.
it was part of the brutalist movement that was the answer to the luftwaffe.it was done in the style of council housing like many of the arts centres at that time,particularly the barbican and south bank.it was done to make working class people comfortable in their institiutions.everybody hated it.....
Of course i may be a lier about that
