I am desperately wanting to be an admirer of this building but so far not. I find the 'rear' bulge so ugly and ungainly. I call it the hunchback of Southwark. Perhaps my initial thoughts will change when it eventually takes shape but, if this is still the incarnation of Ian Simpson then I am not optimistic. It depends on the final cladding. If they decide on something to economise, as with several other proposals, then this could turn out to be rather monstrous in just about the most prominent location. The flats beside are atrocious. Pity they cannot reclad the exterior. This should have been a condition in the development!
