London Swiss Re Building London Hammersmith The Ark buildingThe Empress State Tower dates from the early 1960's and was disused for a number of years. It was completely refurbished and reopened in 2003. The refurbishment cost 80m and involved the addition of an extension to the south, a three floor addition to the roof and a revolving cafe at the very top. The refurbishment was carried out by Wilkinson Eyre architects and won a RIBA architectural award in 2004. Related images: London CityPoint tower

I remember this massive office building from the 1960's when it had a small glass section on the roof similar to an airport control tower. It seemed very futuristic and made quite an impression on me.
