Detail of Centre Point Tower, London. Architect: Richard Seifert. Built: 1966

Centre Point Tower, London is a controversial Grade II-listed concrete Brutalist 117m Skyscraper designed by Richard Seifert in 1966. Nikolaus Pevsner described Centre Point as “coarse in the extreme”.  The building remained without tenants until 1975 due to the management style of property tycoon Harry Hyams who would only lease the building to a single company to reduce his management cost. Needless to say this was met with criticisms of greed at the time.

After winning the Concrete Society’s Mature Structures Award in 2009 the building is receiving more love and a £350 million overhaul of the skyscraper has been revealed in 2012 by Rick Mather Architects and Conran & Partners.
