I’m a fan of curvaceous buildings

Night shot of Crick Institute

The Francis Crick Institute, London, September 2020

The Striking building over the road from St Pancras International Station, is the Francis Crick Institute. It was designed by architects HOK with PLP Architecture and was inspired in part by the vaulted walls of the station opposite. The curved, interlaced roofs make it recognisable from afar, but they also serve a practical purpose, with heating and cooling units hidden below and solar panels incorporated in the roof.
