About this project:
This business park is located next door to City Hall on the River Thames. From the river a diagonal pedestrian route (with fountain river running through the middle) better known as "The Diagonal" leads from London Bridge Station to the Tower Bridge. More London features a southern fa?ade that consists of a horizontal 21-meter stack of satin anodized aluminum tubes that floats over the building's zigzag exterior. The result is a clean 100-meter long visual site-line that draws the eye through a narrow passageway to the River Thames and the London Bridge. A fountain with water jets in small plaza at the end of this passageway provides an appealing destination for the pedestrian and a place to enjoy the view of the river and environs. A plaza in front of More London contains seating, public art and a small cafe.
