Lloyd's Building, London


This is a photo of the Lloyd's building of the insurance institution Lloyd's of London, located at 1, Lime Street in the City of London. 88 metres to the roof, with 14 floors, it was designed by architect Richard Rogers and built between 1978 and 1986. The first Lloyd's building (12 Leadenhall Street) was built on this site in 1928. In 1978, this original 1928 building was demolished to make way for the present one, however, its main entrance at 12 Leadenhall Street was preserved, and forms a rather incongruous attachment to the 1986 structure, as you can see on this photo.
