Feix and Merlin’s redesign of The Tower of London

An article on Building has revealed several modernist drawings that take on the remodeling of several different London landmarks. The image above is Feix and Merlin’s idea for a new and improved Tower of London, complete with London Eye-type glass bubbles that people can ride in on the points of the crown. The crown jewels would be housed in the center, and the green grounds would be home to a loose menagerie of exotic animals. What do you think of their take on this historical landmark?
