City Hall, London 2008
The Greater London Authority City Hall stands on the South Bank of the Thames, right by Tower Bridge (you can see the bridge supports on the left). Purpose-designed by Foster and Partners (who also designed The Gherkin), it is has no traditional front or back and is designed as a hybrid sphere to minimise the surface area exposed to direct sunlight. This means lower air-conditioning costs and overall it is a very eco-friendly building.
To my husband, though, it's known only as The Testicle.
