Opponents claim scheme is ‘repeating mistakes of Garden Bridge fiasco’
The full extent of revisions to David Adjaye’s National Holocaust Memorial has emerged with the publication of new planning documents reflecting changes to the controversial government-backed scheme.
Opposition to the proposals created by Adjaye Associates and Ron Arad for Victoria Tower Gardens – immediately south of the Houses of Parliament – prompted a pre-planning stages revision of the designers’ scheme. Now a second wave of revisions has been submitted, three months after an application for the project was lodged.
Adjaye’s main changes above ground relate to the height and footprint of the memorial’s entrance pavilion. Below ground, the architect has reconfigured the layout of the memorial’s learning centre, reducing its overall footprint but expanding a mezzanine level to maintain floorspace.
