London City Hall

Immediately west of Tower Bridge is this Norman Foster creation, London City Hall.

It is complimented by a plaza of rectangular glass structures and a below-grade amphitheatre. The spire looks as if it was spirited in from the 1964-65 New York World's Fair.

It looks expensive, but not elegant

We are accustomed to the fact that buildings like the town hall is boring offices, where officials sit boring and boring paper work involved. Outside these buildings typically resemble huge stone or glass boxes. And here, a halfway cutted watermelon from glass!
Critics write that the Greater London Mayor Ken Livingstone wanted to say that the municipal work is not dead and the living matter, and that he is not alien to the propensity to originality and humor.
Here of some interesting facts about London City Hall:
The top storey is referred to as 'London's living room' and leads out onto a balcony providing a fine 360˚ panorama of the city.
The building's floor space has the flexibility to be arranged from open-plan to cellular offices.
I am deeply grateful for being given the opportunity to travel to this amazing country and to see such masterpieces. I was amazed of a quantity of Limo London owners.I love going to Cities and getting lost in the history of the place, I can do that everyday in London. Next time you go to London, open your eyes and look around you. It is like an another world.
