London day 9

Spent some time researching ‘that’ building … 
Found it!

Minster Court, Mincing Lane, W5, a group of three buildings in London’s square mile built in 1991 described in this article as postmodern-gothic.  The article goes on to say that you either love it or hate it … I just love it, particularly these views over the roof tops.

The exterior of the building was used in Disney’s 101 Dalmatians as Cruella De Ville’s haute couture fashion house and also in the 2010 ITV remake of ‘Bouquet of Barbed Wire’ starring Trevor Eve ...
… and on the forecourt are bronze sculptures of three horses by Althea Wynne which have been nicknamed ‘Yen’, ‘Dollar’ and ‘Sterling’.

Maybe whilst we’re here in London we’ll pay Mincing Lane a visit.
