Inside Out: Lloyds Building, London by Richard Rogers-
The Lloyd’s building was designed in the 1970s by Richard Rogers. Construction on the building, which is situated near Liverpool street in London’s East end, began in 1978 and was completed in 1986. The building is sometimes referred to as the inside out bulding due to the fact that all the services, ducts and lifts are on the outside of the building, giving it it’s distinct character, instead of being hidden within. The building is grade 1 listed and it received this listing only 25 years after completion in 2011.
