Renzo Piano. Central St. Giles

:   :  : ::: THE FACT
the 6 different facades are made of  brightly coloured ceramic cladding, assembled out of thousands of individual pieces. This material will barely fade and is self-cleaning in the rain, so will look much the same as it does now for decades.

"I wanted to make a building that smiles"
Renzo Piano

 :   :  : ::: THE CRITIC
"Central St Giles plays a high-risk game — it could have been nauseating — but in the end I am heartily glad that it is not another work of nondescript glass. It really does bring a new kind of energy to the neighbourhood."
