Open House 2015

Great views across London from Tower 42 and the Trellick Tower; visited the cathedral of sewage (Abbey Mills); wandered on a disused platform that has a garden on it, with cabbage and tomatoes and bees at Barbican station; wore a hard hat and fluorescent jacket and walked on the roof of the new Pudding Mill Lane Crossrail station; saw brutalist architecture at the Trellick Tower and the Embassy of the Slovak Republic; visited a synagogue for the first time; wandered down into a large air raid shelter, underground in East Sheen; stood inside the Kilmorey Mausoleum; learnt about expressionist architecture at the Rudolf Steiner House; and went inside a hotel room inside a sculpture that looks a bit like a robot.
