“What’s the point?”, you may be wondering.
This 3-metre tall, illuminated lettering is part of the London Lumière show. In fact, it is the name taken from a famous London building, known for many years as “London’s Empty Skyscraper” because it sat without tenants for its first 10 years.
Built in the 1960s with 34 floors and 117 metres high, Centre Point was one of London’s first skyscrapers. Its large, bright name was visible from some distance. The building is currently undergoing a significant renovation so the name has been allowed a short break in Trafalgar Square.
