Lloyds of London

London is known for its financial district.  One of the most notorious well-known companies to reside here is Lloyds of London.  Now without condoning some of their past insurance-based practices, I’d like to present their outstanding building!  Completed in 1986 this “Inside out” building houses the majority of its services such as lifts, stairwells and ducting on the outside, allowing for an unencumbered space inside.  A similar building exists in Paris called the Pompidou centre housing the Musée National d’Art Moderne.  We are hoping to visit Paris Museum of Modern art next week on our Paris trip.  As it was a Sunday I was unable to look into the Lloyds building…and I’m not even sure I would have been allowed.

This post also makes up my entry to the weekly post photo challenge with the theme of “Wish“.  My wish is that these posts will start to inspire others to pick up their camera, get out there and take some great photos to share with the world!
