London – some Postmodern architecture

Again this post isn’t meant to be a comprehensive guide, it’s just a place to put some of my photos. I’ll be adding a lot more in the future.

Please see my other posts on Art Deco Architecture, Brutalist Architecture and Neoclassical Architecture. Also dedicated posts on Kings Cross and Clerkenwell. You’ll find my map here.

Most of the skyscrapers are located in the City of London, the financial district. You can get good views of the City skyline from the Millennium Bridge.

Buildings that caught my eye in a brief walk through the City included the St Mary Axe Tower at 70 St Mary Axe.

The Gherkin is just down the road at 30 St Mary Axe but I didn’t have time to see it.

Also Ropemaker Place at 25 Ropemaker Street stands out for its intricate glazing.

Another tour I’d love to do is to go up the Post Office Tower.

On the south bank of the Thames the most noticable skyscraper is The Shard in Southwark.

The ticket for the viewing platform is the most expensive in the world apparently but I’m told you can skip it by making a reservation for one of the bars or restaurants.

Also on the south bank is the The Boomerang; a mixed-use development at 1 Blackfriars Road in Bankside.

This post is just a stub. More to come in the future!
