English architect Michael Hopkins is well known for creating futuristic designs. In most cases Hopkins uses geometric shape to emphasize the building structure. One such building is portcullis house.
This design reflects most of Michael Hopkins designs as he uses the usual materials of steel and stone. This gives it a technological look and shows how the world has changed throughout the decades.
This structure is made of glass steel and stone and is also a bold structure sitting to attract the attention of the public. The shape of the building is quite unique an square. It may have been influences by technology because of it’s whole unique look being geometric and bold. This causes me to think it may have been made to reflect industrial because of its many chimneys.
