Details of the architecture of Shrewsbury which contains over 660 listed buildings built on an unaltered medieval street plan. Some of the tudor buildings are gloriously wonky and the narrow streets called “shuts” have overhanging window bays that almost touch at second floor level.

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.
