I had to laugh when I read this-

Philadelphia-based architect Kieran Timberlake has won the battle to design the new US embassy in London - the largest American building in western Europe.The design beat off competition from four other practices, all-American, due to security concerns... The US government wants to build the £500m complex, 40-50,000 sq ft, 20 storeys high - on a five-acre site in Nine Elms in south London.

A site currently hosting the biggest Psytrance squat parties in London, where we played on New Years eve. We were all wondering why such a huge area was left vacant for such a long time.
