How bland is it possible to be? (And I do not mean the existing brick wall!)

Well, my first thought was ‘how boring’! But I’ve changed my mind. It’s understated rather than boring, and looks like it will suit the area. I will always miss the sunsets that used to provide such a spectacular backdrop to the much-loved gasometers, but have to accept that we’ve lost that for ever!

The brick wall looks a lot more interesting.

For pity’s sake. One of the wealthiest companies on the planet. A chance to make a statement about their goals, and to grant a legacy to the area which will live on for a long time. Something imaginative and inspiring, a creative vision for the future. And what do we get? An identikit flatpack building with all the character of an industrial estate. How depressing.
