Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

One America Square

One America Square is in the city of London and is used as a conference centre and office block. The art deco design is quite unusual for a building that is less than 20 years old.

  1. I think it really is the only period of architecture that can be successfully replicated. Amazingly, the building still looks modern even with eighty year old styling.

  15. Oh, I like that a lot - so classy! I'm glad that things like this are still being built.
    And I confess to being a bit shocked that there's a place called One America Square in London, but I suppose I shouldn't be :)

  17. That building does have a retro feel.

    The garden in the house did have an English feel - expect for the gum trees around the edges, the parrots in the apple trees and the kookaburras!!

  22. We had and fortunately still have Art Deco buildings in Brussels which date from the beginning of last century. Unfortunately many had been destroyed in the 60th, now they save what is saveable !
