MENACING ARCHITECTURE

By hobbo
I have decided, to experiment whilst in Coventry.....to step aside from my usual ...Street...style to dabble in City-Scape’s all with a dab of HDR, which always seems to work best backed by dramatic skies.

Here, a pair of Post-War tower blocks look menacingly down on the odd bits of the old City which escaped the devastating bombing, and the later, total re-development.

Currently there are even more interesting developments, with 1960s post-war ugliness being demolished to make way for something better....hopefully.

A little to the right of this there used to be a building of little architectural or practical merit, called Christchurch House. Underfloor heating was patchy, after open-plan offices were divided, with temperature sensors and heating elements not always in the same space!

However, I spent a bit over 15 years of my working life in there, and when I heard of the demolition, I felt a sense of loss...

Interesting, your comment about the 60s ugliness being replaced by something, hopefully, better.
I get the feeling that in 50 years time, what we think of today as being aesthetically pleasing, will be denounced as 2020 ugliness...
