Pipers Central London model

The model, which can be seen at The Building Centre, is built to a scale of 1:1500. It covers and area from Paddington in the west to the Royal Docks in the east, and from Battersea in the sout to King's Cross in the north.
The buildings in white are recent buildings and proposed buildings with planning permission. Buildings are laser cut from perspex; each layer is the equivalent of one floor.

The model took 9 months to build and involved 15 model makers; it is regularly updated.
