Reach for the sky! Is London at threat of losing its local individuality?

Are developers constructing too many tall buildings? More imaginative ways to innovate than simply building tall are becoming available to architects and planners. The Financial Times states that there is evidence of a transforming London, but at the same time concerns are growing about buildings overshadowing key London architectural gems, such as St Paul’s Cathedral, as developers continue to build in a “reach for the sky” approach. The columnist says his biggest fear is loss of local individuality. Another opinion states that the “forest of skyscrapers that is soon to scar the capital’s skylines” is first on the hit list if London is to retain its sense of uniqueness.
