In pictures: London’s largest new schemes from the air

  • 1 Comment

Photographer Jason Hawkes has photographed some of the capital’s largest developments currently under construction

His birds-eye photographs show work progressing on the Kieran Timberlake-designed US Embassy at Nine Elms which is set to open in 2017. 

The 11-storey cube features a glazed north-facing elevation and a self-cleaning ETFE shell on the building’s remaining three sides. 

Further along the river work on Battersea Power Station is also progressing. The massive £8 billion scheme is currently in phase two of its redevelopment and includes work by Frank Gehry, Foster + Partners, BIG, dRMM, SimpsonHaugh and Partners, Wilkinson Eyre and Purcell. 

Hawkes’ photographs also show the site of the £3 billion Chelsea Barracks scheme where work has begun on the 74-home first phase of work designed by Squire and Partners.

  • No pictures of Wood Wharf & Herons Quay at Canary Wharf? What is happening along South Quay on the Isle of Dogs and Blackwall makes Nine Elms and Greenwich Peninsula look like small villages.
