while cycling past London Fields Lido - the original is London red brick, the extension is built with a cheap modern brick and the wall between the new bit and the old bit is breeze block! Hopefully it is an interim work but it looks awful and the architect should be shot.
Also I was looking across the Thames at the buildings between London Bridge and Billingsgate - its not that they are 'bad' per se its just that they have no sense of being a frontage. If only architects would design to fit in with the surroundings. This would not obviate innovation after all the Pyramid at the Louvre is very modern and yet still fits in with its surroundings, the Gerkin also fits in.
