Sad to see how such a bright, open, area has become overshadowed by modern buildings so that it lacks any "personality" (what on Earth possessed the designer of MIMA to include a great, white, slab for the east facing wall?).
The Bottle of Notes has not been well maintained, with rust patches showing through the paint & grafitti, and the grassed areas which have replaced Victoria Gardens are just a splat of green with no "soul".
On a brighter note, the Knife Angel itself is magnificent and well worth going to see. Hopefully its temporary presence will be the catalyst for revitalising what was previously a pleasant garden to relax in.
