The tower of Boston Manor London Underground station

Boston Manor London Underground station

New for 2011. RIBA Blogs will feature a new image every month celebrating architecture, chosen by the RIBA Library Photographs Collection from RIBApix, where you will discover over 50,000 images on architecture, landscape and the decorative arts.

This month’s image features the striking tower of Boston Manor Underground station, designed by Charles Holden.  Holden’s work for London Underground is currently the subject of an exhibition, Underground Journeys, from the V&A+RIBA Architecture Partnership.
