National Trust has bright idea for St Kilda pier kiosk

Replacing it with a contemporary structure "that spoke of architectural thinking today".

That'd be a tilt-slab apartment block, I reckon.


Upon reflection, the National Trust's faith in modern "architectural thinking' (viz photocopying the plans from the tilt-slab next door) is actually quite clever. They are streamlining the future heritage processing of early 21st C architecture - by making it all (i) the same and (ii) shit, their sweeping conscientiously in to "save" a suitable example of it, in thirty or fifty years time, is going to be a doddle.
