“We should have a moratorium on tall buildings” Barbara Weiss, co-founder of the Skyline Campaign tells Peter Murray. Barbara is principal of Barbara Weiss Architects, working in the residential, healthcare and commercial sectors.

She begins by talking Peter through the work of the Skyline Campaign, and how it aims to raise awareness of tall buildings, making people know what is coming to London. In the past, it has stopped a few major projects and high profile builds and will continue to do so where necessary. 

More than anything it [the Skyline Campaign] helped people organise themselves in order to object.

We have enough towers and continuing to build them is just perpetuating this terrible destruction of London views.
