Embankment Place, Charing Cross

Terry Farrell and Co
1990





View from the river

Farrell's building, housing offices and shops, is built over the platforms of the railroad station. Best seen from the river, it resembles a huge train shed or maybe even a clunky ocean liner. (It has even been compared to an oversized jukebox.) It is an interesting blend of post-modern hip (influenced by Michael Graves) and high tech sleekness. It is more subdued in color than many post-modern buildings; clad in gray granite, it does not clash with other buildings on the Embankment.
