Lloyd’s Building

Notable Building in City of London

While the world’s leading specialist insurance brokers are inside underwriting everything from astronauts’ lives to Taylor Swift's legs, people outside stop to gawp at this famous 'inside-out' building designed by Richard Rogers, one of the architects of Paris' Pompidou Centre. Completed in 1986, the stainless-steel ducts, vents and staircases are exposed on the outside for all to see. It's not open to the public.
