Session 4F: Skyline Iconography

30 October 2017
3:45 PM – 5:15 PM

Tall towers are not built in a vacuum, and cities, particularly those with rich historical heritage, often struggle to rectify the benefits of new towers with the desire for preservation. As a result, skyline iconography has become a pressing issue in many European cities, with a number of different approaches illustrated across cities. 22 Bishopsgate will also be examined as a case study on London’s approach to integrating towers in the skyline.
