“still remarkable after all these years”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

How a staid conservative institution like an insurance market came to commission this building is something of a mystery. But they did and the old boys in pinstripes must not have know what had hit them. The building is great from the outside but if you can get in on the once-a-year oped day called London Open House every September its worth it. Otherwise the interior is out of bounds. You can see the building working from the outside, though. It is now a protected building, in spite of its youth, so cant be altered. Directly opposite is another commercial building by the same architect Richard Rogers - the wedge shaped tower known as the Cheesegrater. so you can see two for the price of one.

“Open house visit”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

Very interesting building. Not sure if you can visit it normally but I went on open house weekend and visited for free. There is an amazing board room at the top which is furnished entirely from some stately home.
