Recladding the hospital was a good idea. It will not be such a blot on the landscape any more.

Hate to dissapoint you guys, but the Guy's reclad is exactly the same as it is now, except with garish racing stripes. Makes it look even worse if you ask me.

It's honestly better looking without the new cladding. Honestly.

Amazing amount of cranes over London, you can clearly see the city is booming.

Is this the correct proposal for the hospital renovation and facelift?

Yes, unfortunately

Why they didn't clad it in red brick, or grey stone, I will never know.

Coz that would look just as bad as that proposal, and would probably get even more grimy than the current Guys in half the amount of time - they should just render it all white I say.

Anyway, the Shard is looking great now, im just waiting for the viewing platforms to be opened... When they finally do I'll make sure im one of the first members of the public up there

If you mean The Place (thread here... http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=296278) then no, it won't.

Nope, that part will be open air. The exterior is pretty much complete.
