Students, please storm ugly buildings.

a real gem

While I worked for SOM we worked in Millbank Tower, its a gem of a 60’s building. Designed by Ronald Ward and Partners in 1963 it is full of hidden features. The UN and the Labour Party have all had offices in the building. Its a shame parts were damaged, but I understand the need to protest. I was lucky, in my generation, the government paid me to study, but it was dependent on my parents income. Education should be free to those who really can’t afford it, what a burden to have a huge loan to repay when you start out on your career. Having a brother who studied in the US, I know. So march on students, but can we only have architectural students protesting then at least they can destroy some of the crap thats been build rather than the good stuff.
