There were some mono photos in the Architects Journal, a copy of which is now buried in my archives. If it ever surfaces, I will post.
The top of the abstract mural is still visible at the entrance to Draper, partially obscured by the 'No Ball Games' sign.
Some of my neighbours and I have been pestering everyone involved in the project for a long time to retain the mural by the entrance and hopefully re-site the 'no ball games' sign placed very unsymphatetically in the middle of the mural. Initially the proposal was to render over that wall till I told everyone to have a proper look and made them realise this was actually a wall with an integral and original art piece well worth preserving.
The intention then shifted to preserving it and maybe add some accent lighting to make a better visible and recognisable feature out of it. However, I fear there will not be money for feature lights...
Graham, I'd suggest you also email the project manager in this matter. The more people make themselves heard the better and the harder it is to ignore our voices. Do you need me to PM you her email address?
Also, could you advise where precisely that marble flooring would be and why it was covered in the 80's? Is it inside the concierge area, which I believe will receive some form of works to it too.
