We are excited to announce the release of a new piece of work in the online gallery. The Lloyd's Building of London hand drawing is a rich, colourful and intricate study of one of the most iconic buildings in London.
The Lloyd’s building was designed by Richard Rogers and Partners, undisputed pioneers of the high-tech architecture movement.
Located on the former site of East india House in Lime Street in the financial centre of the City of London it is home to the insurance institution Lloyd's of London.
Lloyd's iconic architectural expression is generated by the migration of all services and circulation to the exterior of the building to maximise clear interior floor space. This type of architecture has been described as ‘radical Bowellism’.
Completed in 1986 Lloyd’s was given a Grade I listing by English Heritage in 2011, the youngest structure to achieve that status.
Limited edition prints of this original hand drawing are available now in the online gallery. The print size is A2 (42cm x 59.4cm). Editions are giclee prints on heavy 308gsm matt fine art paper.
50 signed and numbered editions available
1 signed artist proof available
