hi, i have just started a blog about architecture as i am also an architect. please check it out at www.nicebuildings.blogspot.com and please leave comments to help me make this blog a success and a useful source of info for others
Those buildings are really interesting; they look a little bit New Mexican to me. I wonder if the architects were inspired by the Taos Pueblo or by visiting Santa Fe. The buildings in the Donnybrook Quarter have flat roofs, are connected to each other, and are of somewhat varying sizes and shapes, which are all characteristics of pueblo style architecture, which I love. What a fun design Peter Barber Architects came up with for the people of London to use and enjoy.
These public spaces don't seem very activated by architecture. I hope they are well used in the future.
Christopher, +1.I was going to say... in the last two photos, where are the people?
Looks like the architect had a thing for greece.
I think the building complexes are in keeping with the scale of certain areas in London, like Chelsea, where stables and carriage houses were converted for human habitation. With something like this, its really necessary to know what is surrounding these complexes, and what relationship it has to the surrounding area, to be able to harbor any hopeful feelings towards it.
