BBC Television Centre in White City was designed in the late 1950s by Graham Dawbarn. The story goes that, while playing with ideas to fill the triangular plot, he inked in a giant question mark. The typographic doodle turned out to be a fitting design solution, and the studios were built to that shape. When the newsroom was added in the 1990s, it was specifically built into a drum shape to form the dot at the bottom of the question mark.
