Going up!

A Starbucks being installed in London.


Construction in Europe fascinates me, it is so interesting how they have to fit the new onto the physical lattice of history. When I walk around in buildings I often see bizarre little architectural quirks that don't make much sense. The streets are a great example of this, nobody in their right mind would design streets with London's layout. That's what happens when you have thousands of years of history dictating the way you build things.
