London's Striking Modern Tourist Information Centre Harvests Rainwater and Geothermal Energy
Rising from the earth in a pointy array of metal peaks, the dynamic information center makes a strong visual impact within London’s urban fabric. The building’s triangular floor plan was conceived by studying pedestrian flows across the site, and its folded metallic envelope houses 150,000 square feet dedicated to an interesting and extensive list of things to do in the British capital. The light, aerodynamic and sharp envelope is made from 220 pre-finished stainless steel panels shipped from Sweden and assembled on-site in just one night.
