Lloyd's of London is a dedicated Insurance House - it is not connected to Lloyd's Bank. It has often been described as London's Pompidou Centre, a building with which it shares a considerable amount of 'DNA'. It comprises of an annular ring of office space, 12 storeys high, dropping down to six - around a rectangular atrium - with all the ancilliary accommodation - lifts, stairs, toilets - located in separate stainless steel clad towers. The lifts in the tower are the first examples of all glass lift cars in the UK. The cladding of the atrium - 84 metres high - has been likened to Paxton's Crystal Palace. Internally, the atrium is renowned for having all the levels linked by escalators.

Today, Lloyds of London has been Listed by the government following advice from English Heritage. The building, which in 2011 celebrated the 25th anniversary of its completion, becomes the youngest building ever to receive such recognition. Its Grade 1 status is highest grade given to buildings of outstanding historic or architectural interest.

Sci-Fi Deluxe! What a building!! Rogers masterpiece, a timeless classic. Everything modern architecture should be: technical, daring, aggressive, mind-blowing. Love this building.
