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.

  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.
