Though interesting, the article doesn't seem particularly well written, giving the impression that the tent on the western side of the centre is part of the original scheme, and as already mentioned by Lang
Rabbie the cladding on the upper floors. Also, I believe the idea of covering the outside with posters or imagery was part of Erno Goldfinger's rejected scheme, not the one we ended up with.
For anyone interested in the history of the Shopping Centre and the rest of the area, the local studies library off Borough High Street
really is worth a visit - the old newspaper cuttings through the years are fascinating.
