“When making the prints we are in a way seeking for the character or soul of the city’s architecture. The special feel to it,” Gokah advised Dezeen.

“Even so we did not really feel that the exclusive character of London was linked to the city’s architectural incoherence but rather rooted in its historical architecture and qualities of scale proportion, materiality, particulars and craftsmanship.”

The new Elevations posters illustrates five London buildings. St Paul’s Cathedral, Nelson’s Column and Marble Arch are shown alongside the Elizabeth Tower – which houses the bell named Big Ben – and normal Georgian townhouses that can be identified across the city.

“To us, the story of London is anchored in its historic architecture from the 18th, 19th and early 20th century,” mentioned Gokah.

“When functioning with these prints we looked at the city of London as a innovative process unfolding above time, rather than as a geographical spot.”

The Landmarks edition follows the identical theme, but juxtaposes the modern London Eye towards Marble Arch and Big Ben’s clock tower.

Sized 50 by 70 centimetres, the Landmarks poster comes as an edition of 1000. The more substantial Elevations print – measuring 65 by a hundred centimetres – has been created in the same amount.

The London posters can be purchased along with the other city versions from Studio Esinam’s web site.
