Building The World of Tomorrow.

I like the clouds in this one. They mirror my feeling of foreboding when it comes to the regeneration of our city centre. In this case it's the creation of the "Grand Arcade" - in other words a cookie-cutter template-mall with the same shops as in every other city centre in the UK, if not the western world; the independents having been priced out. Here's to repetitive mediocrity! I don't know why I should be concerned - previous projects by our council include the nearby Petty Cury which, until the 60's looked like this and is now delightfully improved to this. Yum. Now, where are my loyalty cards?
