London Olympics, Pumping Station Vent Stack by John Lyall Architects

Architects; John Lyall.

A small but welcome architectural offering with good manners and modest delights near quite a few big architectural neighbours offering mirages.

The walls are partially decorated with Sir Joseph Bazalgette's drawings for his famous Abbey Mill Pumping Station for the legendary sewage system built to his design in mid 19th century.

The return of surface decoration is a recent trend in British architectural scene by some highly respected architects, I have named the 'Crotchet Brigade'.

This publicity material covering most buildings of significance is interesting background for casual viewer.
