Located in the City of London, near Gherkin, home of insurance institution Lloyd's of London was designed by architect Richard Rogers and built over eight years from 1978 to 1986.
The Lloyd's building height is approximately 76 metres (250 feet), and features 14 floors.
Like Pompidou Centre in Paris (which was too designed by Rogers), the building was innovative in having its services such as staircases, lifts, electrical power conduits and water pipes on the outside, leaving a clean uncluttered space inside.
