Burlington Gardens

Each time I visit our building project in Burlington Gardens, it looks more heroic:  the scale of the demolition, the size of the building, the numbers of people working on site.   Today, I went nearly to the top and was able to see the sculptures on the façade newly cleaned and close up.

This is Francis Bacon:-


John Locke:-


Adam Smith:-


The scaffolding is a cat’s cradle:-


And the crane a terrifying height:-



One thought on “Burlington Gardens

  1. Your fearless ascent to the top of 6BG was worth it for those close-up photographs. Thank you.

    It is indeed an heroic building and will bring great credit to the Academy.
