|20 Fenchurch Street|
The building that is to be dubbed the Walkie Talkie has increased the areas of the upper floor mainly for commercial value. This gives the building a interesting shape and emphasises the fact that increasing upper floors will become common as future cities evolve. This may become so exaggerated at some stage that buildings may join towering over the roads below.
I know Heatherwick Studios have used the idea of large upper floors to reduce buildings footprints and increase garden areas below. If anyone has any other examples of TOP HEAVY please comment and let me know!!!! The question here is whether 20 Fenchurch street should have taken more of the qualities in the Heatherwick design of the top heavy building.
