Hi Matthew. You're capturing great images. I can't say I know what this is because there's no hint of scale, but it drew me in immediately as soon as I saw the thumbnail. What is it?
i really love the curvature...
Thanks Hank, would you believe this is a shopping centre (Selfridges Department Store).
Designed by Future Systems, who state “The fluidity of shape recalls the fall of fabric or the soft lines of a body, rises from the ground and gently billows outwards before being drawn in at a kind of waistline. It then curves out again and over to form the roof, in one continuous movement. The skin is made up of thousands of aluminium discs, creating a fine, lustrous grain like the scales of a snake or the sequins of a Paco Rabanne dress. In sunlight it shimmers, reflecting minute changes in weather conditions and taking on the colours, light and shapes of people and things passing by – an animate and breathing form.”
Thanks also, Rafael, yes - the building has some great curves.
