Up in that London on Friday, watching the world go by sat in traffic I was reminded of the entrance and gates to the British Library....



So I thought I'd start a thread about the use of typography in architecture, what have you got near you?

There's a lot of information here Public lettering (beta version) : British Library about stuff in London, including the British Library.

I also got excited by the work of Chris Labrooy, which you may have seen before>>

What a great idea for a thread, I'll be sure to keep an eye out! It'd be like heaven to live in the 'Bauhaus' :(

Although I wonder how long it is before someone posts a picture of the Millennium Stadium :p

I read that earlier Greg, there's some nice examples on it. The Austrian company who did that one with the X have done some cool shizzle.

:D

I remembered this stately home I saw last year with some cool castellated text on the roof line, in Latin I guess. Can't remember the name of the place. Think it was in Northamptonshire.







Some really nice stonework on the walls too

that gradient was probably done using an infinity wall (or opacity fade into the background) during the render of the image or while taking photograph. Can't tell too well from the image if its a render or a photo.
