Lloyd's Building

The Lloyd’s building was built in 1978 by Richard Rogers and Partners. Located in London’s financial district in England, it stands out for its Bowellist architecture, a modern movement that initially aimed to maximize indoor space by having the buildings’ services such as ducts and lifts located on the exterior. Inaugurated by Queen Elizabeth II in 1986, Lloyd’s Building was listed as a Grade I building over twenty years later, in 2011. As one of the few modern buildings to have reached this status, it is today recognized as a landmark of the modern era.
