And look what Ian Ritchie said about their proposals for the Royal Opera House at the same site only seven years ago:
" The siting, form and external architecture of this theatre have been influenced by this world heritage site. History, gravitas, stone, the space and light qualities of the riverspace, the spectacular views, night-time illumination of the Tower and Tower Bridge, the park by the river and the tourists appropriation of the riverside park, have all contributed to our conceptual thinking. The auditorium will seat approximately 2,350. "
How apt and I don't disagree with a word they say. Would they have the barefaced cheek to say this about the Thirty Pieces of Silver?
Think this is worth bringing to the attention of Southwark Council
in their presentatiion to the inquiry?
