Lloyds Building, London: 16 reviews and 32 photos
The Lloyds Building was built in 1986 by Richard Rogers. If you don't know his name, you may know one of his other famous creations, the Pompidou Centre in Paris, France.
Lloyds the company was founded in the late 1600's. Unusually, its name comes not from the founders surname, but from a coffee shop where underwriters and shipowners would meet up to arrange insurance for seatime activities.
The Lloyds building has a sort of inside out feel to it and has a lot of stainless steel and external pipes and lift shafts. It tends to look good floodlit at night.
