Depressed Phantom

David’s just depressed the hell out of me.

Contrary to popular belief, I DON’T have a big problem with giant modern glass buildings – just modern buildings in sensitive settings. We’ve been worried for some time about what the hell will become of Trident Hall – not an utterly glorious building in its own right, I’ll admit, but at least low-rise.

We’ve known it’s been hoovered up by the Greenwich Inc. Empire for some time (which, btw is still looking for places to swallow – thanks for the link, Karen) but we didn’t really know what form the hotel we’ve known they want to build would look like.

Well – here it is, courtesy of David.

Apparently, according to the article, the architect has actually worried about what impact her design will have. Not worried all that much, I would hazard. This looks completely out of place in such a historic site, to me.

But am I just being a jumpy Phantom this week? IS it that bad? I guess it could have been worse. What do you think about this?
