The changing London skyline
London’s skyline is about to change more radically than perhaps it ever has done, with 436 towers either planned, proposed or already under construction. And people aren’t happy about it. We explore whether the protesters, campaigners and lobbyists have a point. Is London’s balance of old and new architecture under threat? Should planning policy be radically overhauled? Or are these people merely the latest in a long line of NIMBYs, standing in the way of progress in a city that has to grow rapidly to accommodate new businesses and a projected one-and-a-half million more people by 2030, just to maintain its standing in the world.
