Balfron Tower

I made a series of photographs of the Balfron Tower in 2015 prior to the refurbishment that is currently underway.  This image, from the eastern side, shows the interlocking arrangement where the lift service tower is linked by walkways at every third floor.  Given how the Balfron is scaffolded and wrapped at the moment I was rather pleased to have it to show RIBA Friends on today’s architecture walk, Concrete Futures, through Poplar.  This walk sold out a number of weeks back and so I am aiming to run it again in 2019.  Next stop however is the Barbican Estate photo walk on November 17th.
