UK’s new postal stamp series pays homage to the 10 best contemporary architecture

The Royal Mail, UK’s postal service company, has released a unique postal stamp series celebrating 10 buildings that solidify the presence of contemporary architecture and brilliant engineering in the country. The architectural wonders range from Mecanoo’s Birmingham Library, Zaha Hadid Architects’ London Aquatics Center, and Herzog & de Meuron’s Switch House addition to the Tate Modern, to name a few.

According to the press release of the Royal Mail, the abovementioned buildings, and a couple more others “represent the renaissance of contemporary architecture in the UK of recent years.” The institution has also pointed out the “surge in the construction of new public buildings in the UK” and that “a great many of these adventurous and innovative structures, serving culture, sport, government, and business, have since become popular and integral parts of their local landscapes, often playing a part in regeneration.”
