Lloyds Building – London August 2009

The Lloyds Building is an iconic piece of London architecture, also known as the "Inside-Out Building".  It was designed by architect Richard Rogers and built between 1978 and 1986. Rogers was also co-designer of the Pompidou Centre in Paris and both buildings share the same innovative idea of having its services such as staircases, lifts, electrical power conduits and water pipes on the outside, leaving an uncluttered space inside.  This together with the building's metal cladding makes for an intriguing appearance and a myriad of futuristic photo opportunities – like this one.

This is part of a series of non-food photographs that will be published every Saturday on CookSister. Click here for a full list of photographs previously featured.  All photos featured in Saturday Snapshots are available to buy as greeting cards or prints in my RedBubble store, as well as my new Year of Saturday Snapshots calendar, an A3-size calendar bringing together the most popular images from the first year of Saturday Snapshots.
