London’s Shades of Grey

September 1, 2019 Dima Stouhi 0

Rarely does one see brutalist architecture in the city of London.

With a front to the street of only 2.7 meters, and the tall buildings surrounding it as walls to its boundaries, if you were to look up from the inside of the site, you could see a perfect L shaped fraction of the sky.
