Liverpool Street Station (23)

A brilliant piece of sustained invective by Griff Rhys Jones, the chairman the Victorian Society, particularly excoriating about the lamentable so-called public consultation in which it was nearly impossible to see the principal proposal of the scheme which is to put an office block right smack on top of the adjacent Victorian Great Eastern Hotel. Instead, they show a completely ludicrous image of a fancy swimming pool as if the roof of their office block can be transformed into a perpetually sunny public Lido. There were no proper images of the nature of the proposed junction between the office block and the hotel.

No wonder, because it will look horrible – a horizontal office block plonked on top of a Grade 2* listed, gothic Victorian hotel.
