Tesco building quite impressive - shock!

The artistic design of Tesco here in Willesden Lane is quite a revelation - a modern Tesco in the right setting CAN look good.

I certainly sense that this building could feel quite iconic. It was build quite quickly and I was there the other day and with a short burst of sunshire was really struck at how good it looked.

It leaves a few questions - why don't we have more buildings like this? How come new development is so often lacking flair and design? and on the negative will the structure be of the quality that will last?

Too many buildings in the modern past have had to be pulled down due to shoddy quality and is this facade the cover for poor lifespan? Time will tell...
