A is for… Architecture!

The underground carriage jerks to a halt and I join the group of passengers who shuffle to the sliding doors.  Breaking free of the crowded train should give me space to breathe, but instead, particles of soot tickle my nostrils and make me hold my breath.

Racing up the steps towards the street above, my lungs can no longer wait, forcing me to suck in a mouthful of filthy air.

At the top, I splutter a little before taking in my surroundings.  Ancient brickwork and glass skyscrapers tower above me, the most incredible display of architecture I’ve ever seen.
