If money wasn't an issue then the Guy's re-clad would look incredible. Unfortunately it does, and we've ended up with the runners up prize.

Wow, the shard is looking amazing!
regarding the hospital, why can't they just clean the concrete, or paint it?
I think it just needs a tidy up, not a full reclad.

A re-clad will give it a more modern appearance. The brutalist nature of it really doesn't suit its new surroundings.

Unfortunately the concrete cladding is spalling - you can see where chunks have fallen off in AnthonySE1's pic posted by Porto on the previous page.

We're also told it also doesn't meet modern thermal requirements for the hospital.
