You Are the Quarry #2


A little New Year brain teaser.  Two neighbouring river-fronting apartment buildings below. Which is 'Po-Mo'. 'A' or 'B'?

 A
B

At the Vauxhall end of the Nine Elms Lane stands Market Towers which is a crisply executed commercial building dating possibly from the same period as the Flower Market (seen in the foreground) and which looks like a perfect piece of downtown Houston, Texas.


A few years later (although not that many) someone spent good money rusticating the lower five meters of the building and jazzing up the entrance with an atrium.

Just round the corner from here at 95 Wandsworth Road there's a lovely curvey understated beige building which maybe took it's cues from Willis Faber Dumas.
