Again the association of these two major figures from the cultural elite imprinted a high-quality design mark on the area. Additionally it linked two iconic buildings in London, notably St Paul's Cathedral and Tate Modern. Or, as John Walsh described it "unites the noble bosom of St Paul’s with the brick phallus of Tate Modern in a happy synthesis of yin and yang" (Walsh, 2000:5). This new designed walkway between such significant structures was always likely to present an irresistible pedestrian route, given, for example, its description as "supremely elegant" (Kennedy and Meek, 2000).

A pattern is emerging which is seeking to draw in architects and designers as part of regeneration in a way that seeks to exploit head-on an aesthetically referenced design process. Hence, these go beyond the traditional expectation of the professions as merely providing a technical function. Hence, the design is central to the regeneration strategy itself.
