I am attending night classes at a recently open BSF school. As we walked in for the first time, a fair few people all said "Urgh it looks like a prison!"
It looks really cheap and unfinished. Bare concrete walls and ceilings have been left unfinished, although apparently thats fashionable. Last night, all the lights stopped work.
Both excellent comments.
Another thing that bugs me is that parts of the building are held up by big multi coloured sticks of rock - just looks ridiculous.
Extreme LOL :)
All our new buildings round here are like that. And you wanna see what they have got planned for the reclaimed dockland! Id rather it stay as dockland its that ugly, looks like stevie wonder chose the colour scheme!
Its unbelievable it really is. I mean i know theres always gunna be some wierdo who puts a proposal for such things but for the powers that be to look at it and think "oh that looks alright, how much money do you need?"...
It looks like something you would design on Sim City
Have you seen the college btw? Its finished apparently, but to anyone looking at it you would think it was just unfinished dry wall sheets.
They are probably built by the same company from the same plans :doh:
I always thought the idea of designing something was to make it functional first, then make it pretty. They seem to be doing it the other way round here - thinking about prettiness then sticking rooms inside.
Unplastered walls cause lots of echo, large open areas are usually a nightmare to work in - so these new foyer areas they are putting in are going to be atrocious. It's simply bad design.
Atleast the prison has a net to stop the inmates from doing something daft......i wonder how far the drop is in the school.....could be a leg breaker :eek:
Hey the school designers did a good job, I was wondering how they were going to get students from throwing things off the top floors :D
