Erik Nitsche: Lloyd's Building in London
Richard Rogers is Great Britain's most famous architect. Born in 1933, he studied at the Architectural Association School in London and at the Yale School of Architecture in New Haven, Connecticut. He also constructed the Lloyd's Building in London. When looking at this building, it is apparent that Rogers exposes functional parts of the structure most architects would work hard to cover up. Among the most dramatic features of the Lloyd's Building are the external glass-sided observation lifts, which were used for the first time in a British building as a main means of vertical transportation.
