Lloyd’s Building Black and White

Designed by architect Richard Rogers and built between 1978 and 1986, the Lloyd’s buliding,  Like the Pompidou Centre (designed by Renzo Piano and Rogers),was designed to have  its services such as staircases, lifts, electrical power conduits and water pipes on the outside, leaving an uncluttered space inside. The twelve glass lifts were the first of their kind in the UK. Also like the Pompidou Centre,  the Lloyd’s building was highly influenced by the work of Archigram in the 1950s and 1960s

This photograph was taken in London in 2007.
