B of the Bang Update
Over the past year, a few subscribers have unsubscribed due to "too many updates". No apology, folks. Unlike BBC News, which leaves a lot of stories dangling, I like to bring you the conclusion of a story. I covered the legal hassle over Thomas Heatherwick's B of the Bang (2005) last December (CLICK) with an addendum (CLICK). Now here's the conclusion: Thomas Heatherwick Studio Ltd has agreed to pay Manchester City Council £1.7m in an out-of-court settlement (title link). Ouch! I guess the moral of this story is that art and engineering don't always mix well.
