The black and white photographs above are from negatives taken by Leon KRIGE as a fifth year architecture student, the first one was owned by Barry BIERMAN after his thesis exam. The colour photograph "...was done from a roof nearby, took about 3 months to negotiate access, eventually found a soft spot on a Friday night as security guards changed shift, waited for an hour after a big storm for the change of shift, the views were incredible, 1st they just showed me a window in the revamped part of the building but eventually I was let loose on the roof, very difficult to repeat."
