US Embassy in London

The Guardian reports on the new American Embassy in London, which the US state department says has been designed to “reflect the values of the American people”. Those values it seems are reflected by a 12-storey cube clad in a blastproof glass and plastic façade with a moat running halfway around the building, which the architects freely admit was modelled on a medieval fortress.

    to represent the values of the American people (the American government would be a better suited word) they choose a simple cube with “blast proof” glass … hmmm, what does that reflect? fear? guilt?
