Contemporary Design of The City of London Information Centre 1
The City of London Information Centre is designed by Make.
Located to the south-west of the South Transept of St Paul’s Cathedral, on one of London’s principal tourist routes, the building also sees substantial pedestrian movement. The combined sensitivity and prominence of this site posed a unique design challenge. Extensive analysis of the context and lines of sight informed the position, scale, orientation and profile; the final location ensures that the structure does not impinge on key views of St Paul’s but is calibrated to establish a dialogue with its historic neighbour.
