London Architecture

Today I have made the London Architecture gallery live, with images from the Wallbrook building, the Shard, More London and City Point and others. As more images will be added I will probably divide the galleries per building, but first here are some of the highlights.

The Wallbrook Building

The Wallbrook building is the first building in this gallery. It is situated in the City of London between Bank and Cannon street. I have been back at this building a couple of times to get some good light. In the gallery you will find more views of this new building.  The Wallbrook building is designed by Fosters and Partners and makes use  reinforced polymer shading which gives this nice pattern of repeated curves.

More London is of course known for the City Hall which will appear in the gallery soon enough but this is number 3 and 4 London Riverside. These buildings are part of the More London Estate which is designed by Fosters & Partners.  The blurred fountains in the foreground add to the contrast with the sharp glass outlines of the buildings. This image is stitched from 2 horizontal images taken with a 24mm T/S lens with full shift on the top image.

The last one is China Wharf in Bermondsey by architect Piers Gough. I love the bold red painted steel front of this building with the integrated balconies. I hope this building will be painted one day again as the red paint is fading rapidly.
