The FSMA Tower, City of London

Re-Imagines the tall building not as a singular edifice to one commonly corporate program but as an ecology of different interdependent programs. Layered together in a matrix similar to the conventional city in this manner the urbanism of the city is not left at street level but bought into the sky via informal encounter and diversity of uses and users within the tower. This project is not singular. It proposes the City of London as being re-colonized by people living as well as working within the square mile. The green beacons act as garden squares around which new urban diversity is created, new populations and new economies occur. The centre piece of this program is a reformed Financial Services Authority re-branded to embrace not only the market but also the notion of morality within the financial services industry this public body, is meant as the public watchdog and counterpart to the Bank of England. The tower is sited between the city banks and the Bank of England, at a point of urban confluence but also symbolically positioned in the centre of the city.
