100 Wood Street is a building with two faces. The east fašade, to Wood Street, is a conservative and simple arrangement of alternating stone piers and windows, all in response to planning requirements. This is crowned by a curved diagrid (almost Post-Modern?) roof, featuring alternating opaque and transparent panels. From Wood Street, one is able to negotiate a passage through the building at ground level, where one discovers something completely different on the West elevation. Here the composition edges around the former churchyard of St Mary Staining - complete with tree and Roman ruins - in a bold raking curve of glass. The lower two floors are vertical and the line of the building above is continued to the ground by dramatic, giant, leaning steel columns, which some believe are purely for looks and serve no structural purpose.
