Designed by London-based Ptolemy Dean Architects for Westminster Abbey, this tower is the first significant architectural addition to the Abbey since 1745, and provides stair and lift access to the Triforium, now upgraded from a store to a public gallery. The design contains numerous historical reinterpretations and allusions, and is constructed of 16 kinds of stone laid in alternating bands, glass and steel, all beautifully detailed and superbly finished.
