    Speaking of Brick Lane area -- the old synagogue. Went to an architecture do there once. Spooky.

    Yes, I like BT Tower as well, and the dome.

    I used to love the artists' houses on Talgarth road, very nice inside too.

    I actually don't like the Georgian terraces much, though I see the attraction... bit dull.

    you should, it's a bit special...

    further nomination, spurred by a visit to the serpentine a couple of days ago- ballard fave the park lane hilton


    it was going to be even more looming and intimidating but apparently the queen demanded it be shorter so she didn't have her view of the bloody albert memorial obscured by it or summat. also it has an evocative, if passing resemblance to icon of commie technocracy the comecon building in moscow-


    also this thread is lacking a pic of st pancras in all its goriness and greatness so here y'are


    there's a wonderfully clunky modernist church in catford but the pic doesn't quite do it justice...

    this is maybe my favourite dissensus thread. i wish i could post pictures like you technocrats. i nominate the PLA building, tower hill. its pretty mental. also, if you like john soanes, how about his church in bethnal green?

    Dunno about favourite but every day on my way to work I go past 1 Poultry and that is absolutely hideous. When I found out what used to be there I almost cried, how was that allowed to happen?
    I'll see if I can find some pictures to back up my point.
    I like the Hawksmoor Church on Commercial Street that someone mentioned and also the Masons' Lodge that he did.

    where is hawksmoors masonic lodge? i've never heard of it. but you reminded me of the masonic temple in holborn which is pretty bloody impressive. a bit of a partner for the port of london authority building. very grand.

    I see your point.

    By the way, can we have some off topic submissions from the rest of the UK too, or do we need a seperate thread for that?

    Er, sorry, that's the building I meant. It is Hawksmoor though isn't it?

    Thank you for helping the less technically able.

    i'm sure that temple was built in the 1930s or something. i'll try and find out who the architect was, one tick...
