BW comments on ZHA's tower proposal

January 2018

Barbara Weiss gives her views with others on Zaha Hadid Architects proposals for a high-rise, mixed-use scheme with two towers of 53 and 42 storeys, linked by an 11-storey podium at Vauxhall, south London.
‘Although these buildings are better-designed than the Squires ones, this application is attempting to add more height by stealth... The River Thames is becoming a canyon and the price to the skyline of Boris Johnson’s liberal approach to tall buildings is becoming increasingly clear.’ - Barbara Weiss
