A little update

Self-evident location




The white building on the right is the former home of the London Docklands Development Corporation, that kicked off everything that led to Canary Wharf




Old and new: St Botolph's Church by George Dance the Elder (built 1741-1744) with Nicholas Grimshaw's St Botolph's house under construction behind.




A right mix of eras: the platform in the Thames is doing exploration work in the bed of the river in preparation for the Thames Tunnel - a project to build a 20 mile long tunnel to move sewage down river to Becton Treatment works during times of peak rainfall instead of dumping it in the Thames.





The quieter end of Shad Thames, London SE1

Thanks folks

Today brings us New London Bridge House by Richard Seifert - demolition has just started to make way for a new Renzo Piano building to accompany the Shard of Glass.



and nearby Thomas Heatherwick's wrapping of the boiler room of Guy's Hospital, entitled Boiler Suit. It's a sort of stainless steel wicker.





And some diggers in action at the Shard site.

These photos have such an energy and buzz about them, you really manage to capture the atmosphere of London every time.

Drapers Gardens by Foggo Associates near completion (replacing a Richard Siefert building - they're disappearing fast, folks)

I did quite enjoy the articulation of the curtain wall.



and something more familiar

Down at the Elephant & Castle today for a sample of disappearing 60s London.

Claydon House on the Heygate Estate is living on borrowed time. The last of the residents are moving out before demolition begins.





Draper House on Newington Butts



There's something about corners in underpasses...

Thank you.

I've posted these on the Shard construction thread, but I think they'll bear a repost here.

Quick 'n' dirty stitched pano from Rotherhithe. The photos were taken at the end of October, but I've only just got round to seeing how it works.



You can get at a much bigger version here
