The Dr's quote is grand: “Breakthroughs in engineering work in the same way as breakthroughs in literature, music and lifestyle – an accumulation of different discoveries (or influences) is required to create the final catalyst for a new discovery.” This is how change accelerates; hopefully it will in a green way.The futuristic drawing does not worry me for creativity but the upside-down glass pyramid looks to me like a future funnel when the Thames gates are overmatched, and I do fear for the archaological record when London goes underground all over. Still - high marks for ingenuity. These sorts of explorations stretch our minds to find the best right paths forward.
Sarah--I had the same thought about "funneling." Super-deep basements seem like a bad idea in cities like London and New York that are battling rising sea levels! But yes, points for creativity.
