Since its opening in 1966 as one of the first skyscrapers in central London, Centre Point tower has been an iconic but highly controversial building. Built as speculative office space, the building was empty for many years, and became better known as a London landmark rather than being associated with any single user or purpose.
This video short by Nigel Ordish (aka Fairman) and Michael Dye explores the physical design and local context of the building in an experimental collaboration through images and music.
In 2010, Mike Dye (of Mike Dye Associates) was commissioned to create a still photographic study of the Centre Point tower, in London. He subsequently initiated the idea of a collaboration to produce a video using his photographs with a specially composed soundtrack by Nigel Ordish.
