This project challenged the panel to agree a final conclusion on its merits. It is a skilful and well worked solution to a testing problem with a very successful outcome for the building. There were some reservations over the scale and cladding of the entrance pod, however; some felt the metal fin cladding was too heavy and the entrance area less generous than it could have been.
