This is a daunting sight on the west London skyline. It’s called Trellick Tower, a Brutalist tower block. If you’re standing close to this concrete beast, it soars above you and leaves you feeling dwarfed and a little intimidated.

Trellick was a slight detour on the canalside walk I took with fellow photographer Richard Cooper-Knight. I also went to visit its east London sibling – Balfron Tower – some months ago and visited one of the apartments inside with its impressive views.
Impressive is the word for architecture like this…
