When I'm not talking about lifts, levels and loos I'm usually taking photographs. A photograph of mine of the entrance to Block D at Bletchley Park is included in the 100 Buildings 100 Years exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts. The exhibition and accompanying book of the same name celebrate the hundred years of design and architectural heritage that The Twentieth Century Society has worked to safeguard since 1979.

Block D was selected as the building for 1943 by Roland Jeffery, Director of the Historic Chapels Trust. Here's an extract from the text in the book:

The brilliance of the Bletchley mathematicians, their cracking of Enigma, the creation of the world’s first electronic programmable computer on the site - all have captured the world’s imagination. But for me, D Block and its routine and dutiful drudgery is as worthy of remembering.
— Roland Jeffery, 100 Years 100 Buildings, published by Batsford, 2014.
