The newish tower block on the borders of Shoreditch and Spitalfields has gained a new mural, by the artist Agostino Iacurci.

Italian-born, Berlin-based street artist Agostino Iacurci’s newest mural is titled ‘Eight Rooms’, and is essentially, bold outlined portraits of objects that could be found in, well, eight rooms.

Agostino’s mural at Principal Place is described as “reflecting his unmistakable, poetic style with dream-like images and clean geometric style”.

Since 2009 Agostino has been creating monumental wall-paintings and installations for public and private institutions.

The mural is temporary, as it covers up a recently completed row of retail outlets, known as The Pavilion, some of which are waiting for tenants.

Principal Place was developed by Brookfield and designed by Foster & Partners, and the entire office building has been let to Amazon. Next to it, and more noticeable from a distance is a 50 storey residential tower.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
