Colman House, Hayes, Middlesex, UK„ 1962
(Owen Luder Partnership)
I know it’s about the residential tower, but somehow I am more attracted to that building right below it. There is something about its symmetry and its shape that I find irresistible and the blackness of those cavities make it more interesting. I’ve come across so many examples of similar shape buildings and structures – Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye comes to mind – and I just don’t know why I find them so attractive.
