 What the architects have done here by restoring and adding to the pathways around this Wren church is reconstruct the sacred. I do admire them. They recreate something that was always there: Wren built his church on the banks of the Walbrook. Trust the Dutch.
     New Court, Rothschild Bank London (OMA* with Allies & Morrison and Pringle Brandon) rises serenely above St Stephen Walbrook - but in a good way; this is intelligent modern architecture at its best.
