Interactive photos, new buildings and the London skyline.


The Guardian has put together this interesting interactive photo series to illustrate the  effect of the ever-changing London skyline and how new construction of larger and taller buildings will change it. The Gherkin, The Shard, The Leadenhall Building (the Cheesegrater), The Heron Tower, and 20 Fenchurch Street (the Walkie-Talkie) have made their mark on London, but there are many more to follow.

From an education design perspective it’s interesting to come across the use of self-discovery to help engage with the message and learning content.

Whilst on the subject of these new buildings, here’s a beautifully shot time lapse of the Cheesegrater being built by filmmakers Dan Lowe and Paul Raftery.

I’ve been carrying out plenty of research into learning design and finding resources to help guide my thinking. Google have made this resource available for Android developers. It showcases how to communicate simply and the power of illustrations to minimise the need to write long passages of text. Thank you Google. Click Here.
