Last chance to see the wonderful, seemingly impossible floating building in Covent Garden East Piazza by artist Alex Chinneck with is on display until October 24, 2014. The engineering behind the 12-metre-long sculpture has been made from a steel frame and a type of expanded polystyrene called filcor to reduce weight. The counterweight for the cantilever is hidden in the green market stall to the right if the structure. Digital paint techniques and were used to resemble the existing architecture in the area.

These photos was created by blending multiple frames in Photoshop so as to have a clear image of the sculpture as there was a constant flow of people obstructing the view.

The interior of the incomparable Oxford University Museum of Natural History, where each column is a different native rock and each capital is a different biologically correct plant whilst the overall effect is that of the skeleton of the building and animals intertwined. The use of iron colums and glass to let so much light in the space was a precursor to the hi tech movement in modern architecture. The building was designed by Thomas Newenham Deane and Benjamin Woodward in 1850. The roof has recently been restored so the decoration is much clearer.
