This mirrored image is of my friend who went with me on the Modern Architecture photowalk in the City of London.
This was a black marble-like seat near the building at 88 Wood Street. I managed to get rid of the bird droppings etc but it still shows the wear and tear of much use.
“88 Wood Street (1999) was designed by the Richard Rogers Partnership, this has three linked blocks of office accommodation that step up from eight storeys on Wood Street, to 18 storeys to the west. Ultra-clear, low-iron glazing has been used for most of the building’s façades. The glass’s extraordinary level of transparency allows internal elements, such as lift shafts and stairwells, to be displayed to dramatic effect.”
The lady is in the lift going up and it shows the brightly coloured utilities inside the building.
The blue and red pipes are ventilation shafts. There are many on the outside of the building.
