I love the Gateway Building.

It's very much like something Hans Kollhoff would have designed in Berlin or The Hague... very very similar.

The Bloomberg Centre turned out amazing. Also Adjaye's memorial will be wonderful. I love how it's a huge underground building with only a sculpture to show its entrance.

I find this thread in the city/metro Compilation the most interesting one. It`s not only because of the many projects going on in London but SE9 also makes a great job.

I couldn't agree more. @VDB also does a great job on the Manchester thread.

Bloomberg building is so gorgeous. It's very good to see classic and modern buildings mixing altogether in London.

Cheers, and VDB does an excellent job in the Manchester thread!

It takes a little extra effort to post project details, source higher quality images and format them to a uniform width, but it makes a big difference to the viewing experience.
