Two images from a short walk around Whitechapel, East London, this morning. The red wall with erased grafitti is like a huge sculptural impediment planted in the urban landscape. The large tag "2001" faces it across the street and behind this small, decorated building is a huge, brutalist concrete slab - part of the renovation scheme for the East London overground railway, which is presumably connected with the forthcoming London Olympics.
no demolition of the drama theatre building in Cologne.
yes to sustainability in town planning and the restoration of the drama theatre building in the Riphan-designed opera-complex with Opernterrassen (restaurant).
