Architecture Update: Views of the Tower

PLANS were submitted last week to the Corporation of London to replace the 16-storey offices belonging to the insurance brokers Bowrings. The S-shaped building will be replaced by two five- to six- storey triangular buildings linked by a glazed atrium. Demolishing the existing building will open up a view of the Tower of London from the Monument. A public space around All Hallows Church will serve as a backdrop for cafes, bars and exhibitions.
