It is also the view shared by Sir Leslie Martin, the architect who so successfully designed the Royal Festival Hall in 1951. Following the international competition for the masterplan in September 1994 a detailed presentation was made to Sir Leslie, after which he gave our scheme his warmest support.
To quote from his letter to Nicholas Snowman, our chief executive: "The Richard Rogers scheme has made it possible to create this ... splendid new centre for the arts ... to ensure that the Royal Festival Hall, already a Grade I listed building, will in the future have a valuable and appropriate place in that important development."
