Paternoster Square, 29/07/09

Paternoster Square, EC4, WWSI.

‘Not so full of smug Cristal swigging, pinstriped, Porsche driving stock brokers as it once was, we’re off to the home of the London Financial institution which is the Stock Exchange.

Paternoster Square is fairly lucky to be here today with no fewer than three masterplans to redevelop it. It was modern versus traditional, and what we’ve ended up with can only be described as a bit of a mish-mash. But it’s not without a certain visual impact.

In the centre is the aptly named Paternoster Square Column, it being just that with a gold leaf covered flaming copper urn at the top. Much more interesting is Elisabeth Frink’s Shepherd and Sheep.
