Debenhams flagship store on London’s Oxford Street underwent a makeover two years ago. The exterior was given a kinetic facade of brushed aluminium tiles that ripple like water in the wind. The architect was Californian Ned Kahn. Read more about it here.
I glance up at this building regularly as I pass it on my way to the Royal Society of Medicine. On this particular day, sun was hitting the windows directly opposite and being reflected back onto the aluminium tiles and the appearance was of ghostly white rectangles. Despite seeing this building approximately every month or two for two years, I’ve never seen this effect before.
