Description
At the base of Richard Rogers' high-tech Lloyds Building of the 1980's stands the arched entry of the earlier Lloyds building, designed by Sir Edwin Cooper. The stye and materials or Cooper's creation appear in stark yet complementary contrast to the high-rise above, where exposed structure and services formulate aesthetic expression. Keywords: United Kingdom, England, Greater London, corporate headquarters, commercial buildings.
