    Yes, MonkeyB, we're all agreed it's horrible but none of us seem to manage to resist taking pics of it!

    For once I would have liked the colour of something to fade, but I learned yesterday that these buildings are covered in ceramic tiles rather than plastic cladding. And get this; the rationale behind Renzo Piano's choice of colours is musical.... it seems these gaudy citrus shades are supposed to echo the colour of electric guitars. Eh what?! I think that's utter nonsense and the factory he bought them from just had extra stock of these colours because they couldn't shift them.
    Prizes for anyone who can tell me who is famous for playing a yellow, orange or green guitar...

    AND I learned that Ken wanted something even bigger/taller on this site...
