TL2324 : The Icon. An interesting building

near to Stevenage, Hertfordshire, Great Britain

The Icon.  An interesting building.
The Icon. An interesting building.
This building, The Icon, was built for Eagle Star insurance company. From the air it is intended to look like an eagle. Given that this must have imposed significant design difficulties and compromises, it is odd that half of the left (from the top) wing has been omitted and a car park put in its place. The OS map shows the shape very clearly.
