Faits

  • The building is cantilevered at the second storey and the shaped cantilevers correspond to the eight internal columns either side of the core.
  • The tower sits on an entrance podium and has an open balcony towards the top, above the office floors.
  • In December 1968, the Concrete Quarterly described the tower as "...one of the best towers that post-war London has seen".
  • Drapers Gardens was an icon of British 1960s skyscrapers.
  • The building is of flat slab construction with a reinforced central core of concrete which absorbs both main floor loads and lateral forces.
  • In June 2002, planning permission was granted for the tower to be replaced by Drapers Gardens.
  • The Twentieth Century Society attempted - and failed - to attain statutory heritage listing for the building, thus allowing it to be demolished.
  • Striking yet controversial, the tower was loathed by many largely due to its brutalist style and proximity to St. Paul's Cathedral.
  • Architect Richard Seifert regarded Drapers Gardens as his proudest achievement.
  • Demolition work began in June 2006, making Drapers Gardens, along with Southwark Towers, the tallest ever high-rise to be demolished in the United Kingdom, surpassing the 93m tall Limebank House also by R. Seifert & Partners.
