‘The Towers of London’ is a diagrammatic view of the tallest buildings and structures in London, as well as some other famous landmarks, juxtaposed beside each other to compare their relative heights.

The central illustration is a digitally-enhanced reproduction of an original pen drawing, and all buildings have been drawn with a reasonable degree of accuracy and their heights have been plotted after research via various online resources.

There are 78 buildings and structures featured altogether. The tallest buildings include the Shard, Canary Wharf, Heron Tower, Tower 42, The Gherkin, BT Tower, the Walkie Talkie and Crystal Palace transmitter; other buildings include St. Paul’s Cathedral, Tate Modern, the London Eye, Houses of Parliament, St. Pancras Station and Tower Bridge.

The print includes an insert which lists the details (height, date of completion and architects) of all the buildings featured.

It is now available to purchase on Etsy in three sizes, please visit http://www.thisismikehall.com/shop

Begun in 2012, on hiatus throughout 2013 and resumed in 2014 - this is my ‘Towers of London’ project, a detailed pen drawing of the fifty tallest  buildings in London juxtaposed together with other famous landmarks in one ensemble image. Each building has been drawn as closely to scale as I could manage. How many do you recognise?

Now that this stage is complete, I next need to scan it and make some small digital edits and additions here and there before it’s completely finished - more images of which shall follow in the near future. Stay tuned!

HS- Haverstock School 

The colourful façade of this school attracts the attention of pedestrians.

In combination with the blue sky it produces a pleasant palate of splashing colours.

The dynamic of its steal geometrical cut outs makes the reflexion of the sunlight fall into the orange wall behind,  producing rectangular shapes that give dimension as well as textures.
