Whitechapel Bell Foundry

I missed Rowan Moore’s sensible and well informed account of the arguments surrounding the Whitechapel Bell Foundry in yesterday’s Observer. As he says, the new plans make efforts to retain some elements of its former use as a tourist attraction. But this is not the same as retaining a stronger sense of the long history of bell making in the area and the fabric of the building in its original form.
