CABE 's latest maulings
Ooh, CABE get tough with MAKE architects. Their Cube project in Birmingham has been labelled 'claustrophobic' and 'uncomfortable' in its attempts to make a large genuinely mixed-use building actually work. They've ended up with lots of single-aspect apartments in their very deep plan.

And a proposed 36 storey tower by Mersey Property on the Liverpool waterfront has been slammed for being 'joyless'. The quango also added that the site may not be suitable for a tall building: "the northern cluster may be adjacent to the site, but it is cut off physically...it will not be understood the same way at street level." But MP is still confident of getting planning.
