A new extension and public space for Greenwich
Bloody hell, is there something in the water when it comes to museums and their extensions? Images of the National Maritime Museum's new wing have been released and immediately (and unkindly, we think) dubbed a 'toast rack'.
The bulk of the building will be underground so it won't disturb the heritage site of Greenwich Park. The roof will become a new terrace - with those upwards-jutting structures to hold overgrown newspapers, letters or - if you want - toast. As with seemingly everything around Greenwich at the moment, the extension is due to be completed by 2012.
