"The Wall" at the Medical Science Building


Just up the stairs visible to the right in yesterday's pic, you will find this incredible wall/sculpture of cast concrete. The arts budget of the Med Sci was spent on thousands of cast concrete panels cladding the exterior of the building and this section has to be the best! By artist Robert Downing it was part of his continuing 'cube' series and was installed in 1967 as part of the building's construction.
I wish everyone a Happy New Year - enjoy, be safe, and prosper! Thanks for all the wonderful comments throughout the year and "hurray" to all.

This looks great, and a bit similar to a photo I took at the Haninge cultural centre a few months ago.
