A London photo every day. Some pictures will be there for their own sake, some because they are places you may like to see, all because they are part of what makes London what it is. Requests welcome!

Comments on "The LSE is slipping"
It is a really subtle way to dress up an older building!
That building is relatively new to the LSE, and only recently opened, so I'd guess most of it has been rehabbed in the last couple of years.
This Edwardian building was completely reconfigured internally by (Nicholas) Grimshaw Architects, a project that took about two years, before reopening as the LSE's New Academic Building in 2008. This artwork, Square the Block, unveiled in September 2009, is by Richard Wilson who also created one of my favourite art/architectural interventions, Turning the Place Over in Liverpool. (Worth hunting down on YouTube, if you haven't/can't get to see it "in the flesh".)
