It’s that time of week again, Happy #PhotoFriday everyone! Today’s offering is an image of an abstract sculpture designed by Thomas Heatherwick installed at Paternoster Square.

The Paternoster Vents by Thomas Heatherwick.

This sculpture has a dual purpose, as well as providing a striking piece of modern sculpture for us to admire, it also serves as Ventilation for an underground electrical substation below!

If you think the name Thomas Heatherwick sound familiar, he was responsible for designing the quite outstanding Olympic Cauldron for the Olympic games held in London in 2012. I strongly recommend that you take a look at his other works, he is truly a design superstar!
