Lonely Planet review

While the world’s leading insurance brokers are inside underwriting everything from cosmonauts’ lives to film stars’ legs, people outside still stop to gawp at the stainless-steel external ducting and staircases of this 1986 building. Designed by Richard Rogers, one of the architects of the Pompidou Centre in Paris, its brave-new-world postmodernism strikes a particular contrast with the olde-worlde Leadenhall Market next door.
