Beyond the rainbow

I had another day in London today, this time for work. I had some time to kill when I arrived at Victoria Station though so I popped into Westminster Cathedral to have a look round. While it's a magnificent building it's also covered in scaffolding inside at the moment so I didn't get a photo I was happy enough with to post here. As I left I noticed a very modern building on the other side of Victoria Street and decided to take a look. At one end I noticed a large lobby area with this rather striking neon light on the wall. I smiled sweetly at the security guard and asked if I could take a photo and he agreed. I really like the contrast of the neutral stone walls and the grey escalators with the rainbow colours of the neon strips and the title of this post struck me immediately. I have absolutely no idea what this end of the building is used for (the other ends houses offices and a number of shops) but I'm pleased I happened upon it!
