BTW - the Architect's Journal also has an image of a building on New Kent Road
that has just got planning permission from Southwark.
"The building's distinctive front and rear facades are designed to resemble a creeping vine, in the form of triangular cladding on the front and rear elevations."
It looks hideous in the computer image - the holes in the facade appear to be completely arbitrary shapes with no underlying logic - unlike Hadid's where although it looks crazy you know there is some fiendishly hard geometry behind every decision that you can crack if you try.
I do hope local practice Glas architects aren't losing their touch after their successful Newhams Row project.
