Photographer's Note

The walls comprise two skins of glass, held a distance apart. On to both a pattern has been applied - a luxuriant swirl of abstracted tendrils, drawn from a fabric design in the John Lewis archive. The images are aligned, so the view out isn't entirely obscured. But, seen at a tangent from the pavement, the patterns mesh into a dense knot, blanking off the interior. Walls can therefore be erected behind the glass as required without affecting the external appearance. The architects and designers are Farshid Moussavi and her husband Alejandro Zaero-Polo.Their company is known as Foreign Office Architects.
Thank you to Mr Wesson and the Daily Telegraph for the information.
