It's quite extraodrinary that having forcibly closed down the Library in Lower Marsh, Lambeth is now going to pay Conran to come up with a design for a Library on the very same spot! Not that I'm against the Library being there - quite the opposite - just that it should never have been closed in the first place. And, by the way, what occupies a few shelves at The Oasis Centre is NOT the stock of the old Library - it's about one third of it. And it's unstaffed nearly all the time.

Just to be clear - it's not a library they've asked Conran to design.

The details of the brief haven't been revealed, but it'll most likely be shops and flats.
