Skyscraper boom in London ought to prompt greener cities

    Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

    Abstract

    A survey by the New London Architecture think tank has suggested that London’s skyline is set to become a lot more crowded with at least 236 tall buildings over 20 storeys currently proposed, approved or under construction. All this growth is very well, but will cause some worry. It should prompt us to promote another kind of growth – as Frank Lloyd Wright once said, a physician can bury his mistakes, but an architect can only advise his client to plant vines. And it’s not just vines we could be planting.
