Hotel architecture

Over at Ballardian.com, I've put up a few photos from my recent sojourn at the Heathrow Hilton. It's one of JG Ballard's favourite sites, as he often mentions in interviews:
"It is my favourite building in London, and keeps alive the spirit of the 20th century’s greatest architect, Le Corbusier. Beautifully proportioned, it resembles a cross between a brain surgery hospital and a space station. I am always supremely happy in its vast atrium, and I wait for the day when the whole of London resembles this future classic."

The cocktail bar serves a mean mohito too.
