floating bell tower in london

i was down in london a couple of weeks ago for an interview (which sadly i didn't get what i was applying for), i saw this near baker st. underground station:


in what could only be described as the most amazingly pointless engineering feat, they seemed to manage to suspend the top section of a bell tower and completely destroy whatever was underneath. i suspect that due to some council heritage preservation law, the developers were required only to preserve the bell tower, and nothing else, so they knocked everything down to maybe build a huge cinema, or tescos, and then slap that bell tower back on top of it.

You can reply to me about this on Twitter:
