London sky-line

Both embankments of the river Thames supply me with spectacular sky-line. However, to much time to do it justice is needed

The thought of having a master plan is a concept that for London would have helped centuries ago.

A block layout – New York – while seeming juvenile, offers long term benefits for the regeneration large areas of cities.

To me the elevation(s) from the flat-land outside of the conurbation is also critically important. This must allow the centre area to rise in unison to give focus to the tallest of tall buildings to benefit from its status.

Here in London, it’s a ragbag affair, where no one tall building has space to breath or be considered for its own merits. The impact of all the buildings is diminished.
