Chris Dyson writes about Tower Hamlets Town Hall

‘Projects as complex as this take time, and as an architect working in the field of historic buildings, it is almost impossible to be precise about the programme. This leaves the remainder of the trio – quality and cost – as the more controllable elements. Hats off to the AHMM team, who valiantly fought each daily battle for quality.

[…] As for the architecture, this is a building of complexity; an urban building, forged of its place and history. It is something to be valued and cherished, as its architects have clearly displayed in their approach to its construction. Just as it wears its history well, I suspect it will be much loved, long into the future.’
