Block C Car Park Entrance

The recent set of pictures from GB got me thinking about the blandness of the tops of the towers on block C to me they look rather like pill boxes. I went back to the plans and compared. This is as installed and the same tower from the approved amended west elevation drawing dated March 2008.

 

Note the detailing has been removed and the window proportion altered, this detail matches that on the tops of the towers in blocks A&B, thus an important unifying theme is lost.

Also note the line of the coping is continued through the tower whereas the larger window (as installed) cuts through it. As the top panel appears correct it is the panel below that has been shorn of detail.
