Super-graphics

Super-graphics

There are several points I should like to make about Dan Bradshaw's article on supergraphics. Mr. Bradshaw says at one point:

"This brilliant colour would be directed into a thinner band of colour that would be directed across the walls and ceilings. By following this band the person would be moved along the passageways. At each separate room the band would branch and end in an arrowhead. Beside the room's entrance there would be decorative expression of where the person had reached in the buildinq."

Really, Mr. Bradshaw, just what are you proposing to smear on the wells outside the lavatories? Some of your own prose perhaps?

As for "softening the stark outline" of the Student Union by painting it R.A.F. blue! Really! This place is quite enough of an architectural "curiosity shop" already. May I suggest as an alternative a long, thin, red, cylindrical stick of dynamite!
