The London Evolution Animation (by en-topia)

Created by the The Bartlett Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, The London Evolution Animation highlights the development of the English capital from the Roman era to the present day, featuring visualizations of networked roads and protected buildings and structures.

This film brings together and animates thousands of georeferenced records to visualize the extent of development in London during specific historical periods and the number of structures we have protected by ‘listing’ and ‘scheduling.’

More information on the structures can be found at the Almost Lost exhibit at New London Architecture.

In 1975, when plans were under way to introduce the London Transport Silver Jubilee Bus fleet, the then Sales Manager of London Transport Advertising, Geoffrey Holliman, proposed to the Chairman of LTE, Kenneth Robinson, that the Fleet line should be renamed the Jubilee line.

However, this idea was rejected because of the additional costs involved.

Nevertheless, the project was subsequently renamed the Jubilee line for Queen Elizabeth II’s 1977 Silver Jubilee following a pledge made by the Conservatives in the Greater London Council election of 1977.

The original choice of battleship grey for the line’s colour was based on the naval meaning of the word fleet; this became a lighter grey, representing the silver colour of the Jubilee itself.

using 1050 individual a0 sized frames with long exposure photography, points in space presents melbournes cbd’s cycles of repetition by responding to the flow of traffic at key intersections. bodies join, weld and converge into swarming masses of movement. this movement is present in each city around the world. the work presents how a city environment is controlled through organised systems. scenarios which may look like elements in chaos, work in harmony.

LHR, LGW, STN, LCY. London’s airports.

(I know there are other airports that put London in their name. I choose to think of these four as the only important airports for the city.)

In 2005, the London 2012 bid team made a bold pledge:
“Choose London and we will create an extraordinary legacy for the UK and the world.” 
The Olympic Games ended almost a year ago, but London has remained firm on the commitment to creating an enduring legacy to everyone that was inspired by the London 2012.

The World Welcomes the New Prince of Cambridge

Today, Kensington Palace announced the birth of the new Prince of Cambridge, the son of Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

Traditionally the announcements are made via an easel placed outside Buckingham Palace, and crowds have gathered for weeks in anticipation of its placement.

For more photos and videos from the crowds at the announcement, visit the Buckingham Palace, Buckingham Palace Gate and St. Mary’s Hospital location pages. You can also browse the #buckinghampalace, #stmaryshospital and #royalbaby hashtags and discover more from the Royal Family by following their official accounts: @the_british_monarchy—where they shared their first photo of the announcement—and @clarencehouse.
