Future world monument? Unlikely!


New images which are said to show how the project will transform the city

The Express and Star quotes Argent’s claim that the new buildings – One and Two Chamberlain Square – will complement the existing civic buildings including the town hall, council house and the museum and art gallery. The Express and Star asks what readers think. First comment: comes from Jessmere:

“Yeah ‘stunning new CGI images’ of yet another nondescript glass, steel and concrete box”

These buildings will replace the Madin library (above) – the second-highest used in the country, listed in 2011 by the World Monuments Fund – as a significant building at risk.



That library really did ‘complement the existing civic buildings’.
