+ DESCRIPTION


A little “symbol” in London.
Bellini reintroduces in the centre of the City of London the theme of the “sphere” which he was using, almost contemporaneously, to reorganise the interiors of the Deutsche Bank buildings in Frankfurt.
The strength of the “symbol” is clearly that it is the functional link between two existing buildings of the same owner, conceived as a sort of “branding” of the Bank which, when repeated, could be immediately recognizable to the world. Paradoxically, if one compares the character of historical Italian cities, the proposal is very “contextual”, adeptly interpreting the multiform image which has been created over recent decades in the City of London.
