Daily Express Building
120 Fleet Street
Sir Evan Owen Williams / Ellis & Clarke
Linocut 372 x 560 mm.
Edition of 100
A fine example of Art Deco architecture, its curved black vitrolite panels (a type of glass) and chrome trim give the building a streamlined, modernist appearance which must have shocked (and hopefully delighted) people when it was first built in the 1930’s.
Private Eye nicknamed the building ‘The Black Lubyanka’ when it was the home of the Daily Express. Following extensive refurbishment and alteration it is now offices for Goldman Sachs.
