They're building a 50 story apartment block, plus hotel on the Southbank. This 170 metre building will shimmer its way into the London skyline, anyone got £6,700,000 for a four bedroom flat??Moving on to something far more interesting, the street lamps on the Southbank, designed by George John Vulliamy in the 1860s apparently they're dolphins?
I have been a Londoner all my life, born 1992. I have found myself traveling around, drawing the city and being amazed by some of the wonderful buildings and places I have failed to take much notice of. When drawing in a place for a day you start to make a connection with the buildings and objects around you, and you begin to feel grounded. This blog is an exploration of London through drawings, and I will be attempting to find out as much as I can about the places, and people In this amazing and scary city.
