Kingsgate House, Victoria Street, London. Masonry tunnels are very susceptible to damage caused by ground movement. Here a
deep basement is to be constructed beside the Circle and District line’s cut-and-cover tunnel running parallel to Victoria Street in
London. Although some ground movement is inevitable, construction sequence must be designed to limit movement to the absolute
minimum. This sequence, which could have been drawn as a series of two-dimensional diagrams, is far more legible when shown as
a number of axonometric slices.
