Eco-Tower to be Bristol's Tallest Building

bristol_tower_main.jpg

We don't know much about it, other that it will be Bristol's tallest building, that it will be built "using state-of-the-art "green" technology and design principles in support of Bristol's pledge, launched in March, to be recognised as the leading green city in the UK." but hey, it's not in Dubai and that makes it noteworthy for a little geographic balance. It is one of the options for another revitalization of grungy British industrial towns, in this case Dove Lane in the St.Paul's district of Bristol. The developers are "conducting a pan-European competition to secure an architect to work with our own architects on the site and particularly to make a contribution in terms of the latest thinking on 'green' buildings." i.e. looking for the starchitect to give it a little more pizazz, although this rendering looks pretty cool. Next step is "stakeholder consultation" i.e. the two worst words in architecture, death by a thousand cuts, we hope something survives. ::24dash and ::myninjaplease
