Foster & Partners, Townshend Landscape Architects
location London
function office, square
contributed by Marieke_Mannens

The City Hall is located on the south bank of the Thames. This distinctive glass globe is home to the Mayor of London, the London Assembly and the GLA. It expresses the transparency and accessibility of the democratic process and demonstrates the potential for a sustainable, virtually non-polluting public building. The building has no front or back: its shape is derived from a geometrically modified sphere. This hybrid form is designed to minimise the surface area exposed to direct sunlight. The design incorporates a number of features designed to make the building as green as possible. Robert Townshend designed the surrounding public space. City Hall usually takes part in London Open House, on the third weekend in September each year. Check for details.

One of the best architecture in London. Beautifully designed, specially the interior is something amazing with its 500 mt spiral staircase!
