Quick question about the latest development at the White Cube site on Bermondsey Street
. They're in the process of knocking down the perimeter wall which I, personally, think is a huge improvement. BUT I was under the impression (from planning related bumph sent to local residents by Southwark council) that White Cube's plan to create a piazza at the front of the gallery by removing said wall had been rejected. The reason given being that it would change the intimate feel of Bermondsey Street
- which I can see is a fair point. Does anyone know what the latest plans are? Is it going to be a big open space or are they going to rebuild a smaller wall at the front?
