100 days of London: Roundup 61-70
Featuring one of the newest and the oldest buildings in our series so far, here are numbers 61-70:
Tower 42 | Dawn colourway: Matching our other skyscraper designs, also known as the Natwest Tower, was designed by Richard Seifert for Natwest. Completed in 1980, for decades it was one of London's tallest buildings.
V&A | Jewel colourway: located in South Kensington since 1857, the foundation stone for the building was laid in 1899 to give a more impressive entrance to the building. Designed by Aston Webb, it was opened in 1909.
Westminster Cathedral | Rustic colourway: Designed by John Bentley, this is the Roman Catholic Mother Church for England and Wales. The building was completed in 1903 and the striped outer facade seemed perfect for our Rustic colourway!
Wembley Stadium | Sunshine colourway: Rebuilt and then opened in 2007 on the site of the old stadium and home to many great sporting events. Its iconic arch, 133m high and floodlit at night, makes it instantly recognisable.
Tower of London | Sunshine colourway: A classic of the London skyline, the Tower of London dates back to Norman times, making it one of the oldest buildings in our series. Built as a fortress, at the time it completely dominated the landscape - now it seems so tiny, almost lost amongst the skyscrapers of the city. A bright piece in our Sunshine colours.
Switch House Tate Modern | Exotic colourway: From one of the oldestto one of the newest with Switch House, Tate Modern. Opened in June this year, it was designed by Herzog & de Meuron. The older building, Boiler House, was a power station designed in by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott in the 1950s. It opened in 2000 as the Tate Modern art gallery.
The O2 | Earthy colourway: Formerly the Millenium Dome, now a large entertainment district and arena, housed inside the dome. The original dome was designed by Richard Rogers, whilst the new O2 was designed by Populous.
Selfridges | Jewel colourway: Selfridges London was opened in 1909, founded by American Harry Gordon Selfridge. Neoclassical in style, the grand building celebrated retail, creating an experience from it.
Somerset House | Midnight colourway: The history of #SomersetHouse dates back to the 1540s, but today's building was completed in the 1800s. Another Neoclassical style building, today it is an art and culture hub.
St Paul's Cathedral | Sunset colourway: Our 70th design is a classic - designed by Sir Christopher Wren, St Paul's Cathedral was built between 1675 and 1710. Often described as Wren's masterpiece, it has remained a great symbol and icon of the London skyline.
