Making The Leadenhall Timelapse

by | Jun 21, 2013 | 0 comments

Paul Raftery and I have been working hard again creating an architectural timelapse document of the Leadenhall Building in the City of London.

Affectionately known as the ‘Cheesegrater’ the 48 story skyscraper has been designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSH+P) , an international architecture practice, for developers British Land and Oxford Properties. RSH+P have commissioned Paul and I to document the construction by contractors Laing O’Rourke. The building has been under construction since early 2011. It is due to complete in summer 2014 and will comprise 610,000 sq ft of office space over 47 floors.

This film is the first 6 month edit of our two year long project to film the entire construction period and follows on from our successful Shard arhcitectural timelapse film (below) that we made last year.

The film was chosen as Vimeo Staff Pick and was featured on The Guardian, Dezeen, Gizmodo, Laughing Squid, Design Curial, Architects’ Journal and ArchDaily.
