The End of a Carbuncle

This was an article which appeared in the Bracknell Standard newspaper (after I'd contacted them!). Back in the mid 90's I had an exhibition at the local arts centre ( South Hill Park ) which featured paintings with a Bracknell theme, but with a touch of humour. One of these paintings (see below) showed planes, instructed by Prince Charles, to destroy a building in Bracknell.Originally occupied by 3M. This building had always been one of my most hated to be constructed in the town, and I always felt that should be it's fate. It was an awful square building with small windows linked to another building with no similar architectural features. The article coincided (not by coincidence) with the long awaited demolition of this monstrosity.
