    LONDONíS NEW CITY HALL

    Looking more like a moon base landing unit than a city hall, the new home to Londonís mayor, designed by Foster and Partners is surrounded by the old stalwarts of Londonís historic past.

Designed for future expansion, the structure will include conference facilities, offices, communications and IT facilities, and support services.

Next week Elizabeth Bollinger will describe the digital processes applied in designing and building the highrise.
