London Lloyds Building dawn rays (comments by Eddy Rhead)

London Lloyds Building 1 Lime Street, EC3, home of Lloyd's of London. The striking and complex shiny metallic structure is lit up by dawn rays. Architect of Lloyd's Building was = Richard Rogers, who also designed the Pompidou Centre in Paris.

"In the early 1960s the young architects Norman Foster and Richard Rogers, along with their respective wives Wendy and Sue, formed the Team 4 architectural practice. They soon went their separate ways, but Foster and Rogers became two of the world's most prominent architects. Between them they led the way in the "Hi Tech" style of architecture and the Lloyd's building by Richard Rogers, built between 1979 and 1984 was the perhaps the pinnacle of this style. The Lloyd's building is perhaps the best building constructed in Britain during the 1980's but, to be frank, that wasn't too hard!"
