DISPLAY OF 10 PAINTINGS @ 88 WOOD STREET LONDON EC2
Colin has been selected by a London based art consultancy to be displayed at prestigious City building 88 Wood Street EC2 from August 2015 to January 2016.
88 Wood Street is a stunning steel and glass emblematic cutting edge architecture, by renowned architect Richard Rogers, famous for the Lloyd’s building. This incredible building is in the heart of the City of London, close to the famous Barbican and the trendy East London area.
Colin’s contemporary paintings are perfect for the huge walls of the main foyer. The ten large works on canvas are hung in a row behind the main reception. These paintings will be seen by many visitors every day, it is a great opportunity to reach a large and changing audience.
About the building
At 88 Wood Street, the panoramic lifts are every bit as exposed to view as those in the Lloyd’s building, but they are protected by the frameless glazing encasing the lift shafts. The lift lobbies on each floor end in a single pane of nearly invisible glass that stretches from floor to ceiling and from one side to the other, visually turning the lift lobbies into external balconies overlooking the Barbican development and London’s skyline beyond. The stairs and the panoramic lifts, both ensconced in their own fully glazed towers, offer even more exhilarating views as they zip up and down the flank of the building.
As far as the building’s occupants are concerned, the glass has also been used to stunning effect on the office floors. The result is that occupants have a panoramic view across the capital on three sides – stretching from St Paul’s Cathedral and the new London Eye to the west, around past the Barbican development to Docklands in the east.
