Make destroys the National Theatre (6)

There is a very good and level-headed analysis by Rowan Moore in this morning’s Observer (in the main paper, not the The New Review) of Make’s plans to create a huge new office development right next to the National Theatre. The question is whether or not it is right to have a new office development on this scale on such a highly sensitive sight right opposite William Chamber’s Somerset House, particularly since, because of the curve of the river, it will dominate views east from Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge. Moore suggests that Michael Gove calls the scheme in. I sincerely hope he will.
