Blue Fin BuildingThe Blue Fin building on Bankside was designed by Allies and Morrison - the award-winning architectural practice also responsible for the Royal Festival Hall New Building and the BBC Media Village. The development is part of Bankside 123, a project by Land Securities to redevelop this part of Southwark into three new buildings. Blue Fin - or Bankside 1 - gets its name from the 2,000 blue aluminium fins that cover the building's façade and shade the interior. Home to IPC Media and assorted offices, there's a shopping arcade and health club on the ground floor. Occupying the space between Southwark Street and Tate Modern, the site was once occupied by St Christopher House and Tabard House.
