BT Tower, London

June 04, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

I was in London last Thursday photographing several architectural projects for a client, one of which was the BT Tower. While touring the streets looking for a good vantage point to make the best of the early light and rare blue sky it struck me what a great example the tower was of the Vitruvian ideals of Commodity, Firmness and Delight. Opened in 1965 the Tower is redolent of times when global excitement was created by manned flights to the moon and supersonic passenger travel and not by the release of the latest slightly upgraded igadget.
