100 days of London: Roundup 51-60
And the second half of 100 days of London architecture kicks off with:
Royal Albert Hall | Sunset: Grade I listed, the Royal Albert Hall was officially opened in 1871. The Royal Albert Hall site has a great history that you can explore, from pre-opening to the present day.
Regents Canal | Rustic: A walk along Regents Canal is always lovely, and along the stretch near Regent's Park are some particularly beautiful buildings.
Strata | Dawn: The 43-storey building makes Strata one of the tallest residential buildings in London. Designed by BFLS, it was completed in 2010.
Marble Hill House | Midnight: Built in the 1720s as a London retreat, this beautiful villa in Twickeham is in the Palladian style. Its interiors have been restored to reflect what Georgian life would have felt like.
Dulwich Picture Gallery | Rustic: Designed and built by Sir John Soane, the building was completed in 1815. The Dulwich Picture Gallery website has a lovely section where you can explore their history and architecture
Queen Elizabeth Hall | Sunset: Opened in 1967, this concert hall, part of the Southbank Centre, is a famous example of Brutalist architecture in London.
Gala Bingo Hall, Tooting | Midnight: Originally opened in the 1930s as a beautiful Art Deco cinema, it is now a Grade I listed building, housing Gala Bingo. It was designed by Cecil Massey.
St Martin-in-the-Fields | Rustic: A Trafalgar Square landmark, this beautiful Georgian church was designed by James Gibbs. The building we see today was completed in 1726, but the history of the site dates back to 1222.
20 Fenchurch | Dawn: At times controversial but ultimately a distinctive building on the London skyline, the Walkie Talkie building was completed in 2014. Designed by Rafael Vinoly, the top three floors are taken up by restaurants and the Sky Garden (one of my favourite places in London).
St Pancras | Jewel: This station is a great example of Victorian Gothic architecture in London. Designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott, it was opened in 1868.
