Time Lapse in Southwark, London

Here is a completed Time-Lapse production shot almost exactly a year ago.  Not a building going up this time but an old Victorian bridge coming down and a new sleek cycle and pedestrian bridge being installed in it’s place.  It was shot over two days, separated  by about 3 weeks.  On the first day we used a two camera setup and had three cameras running for the second day.  Obviously, 90% of the time is spent erecting and dismantling cranes but it is quite fun anyway and the cheesy music eases it along nicely!

Kings Cross Station, Dome Roof, London (MacAslan, Vinci & Arups)

Kings Cross, John MacAslan, Arup, London

I took a train to Nottingham last week and had a few minutes in the station waiting for it to come in.  Having just had it’s first birthday the John MacAslan structure is looking good and well worth a few pics while waiting.

It was built by the French company Vinci and was engineered by Arups.

Here is a time-lapse of the construction courtesy of The Telegraph:
