On a quick walk through Liverpool street’s Broadgate complex last week, I photographed a few views of the new Number five. A complete contrast to what it replaced, with its sharp cutting design lines and 22nd century looks, It most certainly would not appear out of place in science fiction blockbuster!

Lying just on the outskirts of London and on the edge of the beautifully scenic A406, this urban demolition had been in progress for a number of weeks before I got around to shooting it.
Every time I had passed the site, I knew I had to start working soon before it was gone forever, so over the course of three visits (over the same number of weeks) I set about my task to document the fall of this office icon.
Capturing the most interesting angles at the most visually interesting states of deconstruction, I used close up shots, wide shots and various spanning panoramas to document the building.
Standing for decades on the edge of a duel carriage way. Its last moments, now recorded forever.
