"The Inside Out Building" of London
The Inside Out Building - the iconic building also known as the Lloyds Building - has been an object of discussion since completion in 1986. This building is home to the large insurance giant Lloyds of London. The Inside Out Building is largely recognized at a premier example of Bowellism architecture located in the heart of the financial district.
The first thing that most people notice is that the structure (or skeleton) of the building is on the outside. With three towers, 14 floors, and 12 external (and two internal) lifts. The majority of visitors are treated to an amazing view before stepping off of the elevator onto their floor. In 2008, the Twentieth Century Society, a non-profit focused on protecting the architectural heritage of ground-breaking buildings, asked the British government to certify the Lloyds building as a Grade l historical landmark maintained by the government.
