Design for a proposed cafe, Parliament Square, London, with the Treasury building (Government Offices Great George Street) and the 'Big Ben' Clock Tower of the Houses of Parliament seen in the background

Abercrombie, Sir Patrick (1879-1957)
SOURCE: Architectural Review, vol. 102-103, 1947 Nov., p. 165 NOTES: This design proposal for a pedestrian quadrangle featuring a public cafe was produced by the Architectural Review (appearing in an article entitled 'Westminster Regained') as part of the journal's response to the Abercrombie-Forshaw County of London Plan for the replanning of Westminster Precinct. The A.R.'s article sought to visually 'unpick' the proposed scheme through images such as the one shown here. John Brydon was the principal architect of the Treasury building (also known as Government Offices Great George Street), which was built between 1898 and 1917. Sir Charles Barry's 'Big Ben' Clock Tower was built for the Houses of Parliament in 1858.
