FRANKLIN COLLEGE, GRIMSBY BY PICK EVERARD
Pick Everard aren't the worst architects in the world. In fact, I'd say that many of their employees are not out to deliberately fuck places up. However, these drawings are singularly hateful pieces of work.
These drawings say: "Yes, I'm an architect, my father was an architect, and my architect wife and I will soon give birth to architect children. I can draw in this funny style, and as a result I have an overweening superiority complex. I think this complex comes from my undeniable dexterity at colouring in. I can also draw strange stick people in this style, and they are often accompanied by a child carrying a baloon. Clients enjoy these touches, despite the mockery the London elite lays on that kind of thing."
The author of these drawings should be reminded that they work for Pick Everard. And while this college in Grimsby might not end up being actually bad, it will be boring, mediocre and dull, and will look nothing like these drawings.
