Okay, the Arrenberg Court. Beautiful! Simplicity next to the high Victorian main part of the building (www.nationalgallery.org.uk).
www.dixonjones.co.uk). Monumental public stuff they do, geometrical, traditional, solid and sweeping. I like almost everything they have done. In London they redesigned the Exhibition Road with a pattern of wide lozenges that sweep from one side of the street to the other, with very elegant street lamps (http://www.rbkc.gov.uk).
www.kingsplace.co.uk): the outside is a fairly heavy (boring?) looking block of glass and steel with a wavy pattern, but the inside concert venue is a strangely 1940s inspired monumental and symmetrical, yet intimate, space. It is dangerously close to what the Germans of those days liked.
Back to the Arrenberg Court, it is in white with polished black marble. The holes must double as vents. They also make the heavy marble look like a fabric about to be stitched to the wall.
