Gatwick Transfer to Bank Station (EC3)
One of the most controversial buildings in London in the EC3 area, near Bank Underground Station is the headquarters of the insurance company Lloyd, on Lime Street, which is considered the financial district of the metropolis. The building, designed by the architect Richard Rogers, resembles, in conceptual terms, with Georges Pompidou Centre in Paris, with all major functions placed in a duct located at the sight, and also all the lifts. Although last year they celebrated 25 years since the inauguration of the building, it is still in discussion why a company so traditionalist has chosen a project so nonconformist.
Lloyd’s is one of the oldest British companies being founded in 1688 by Edward Lloyd in a cafe on Tower Street, frequented by ships, sailors and merchant’s owners. In 1696, Edward Lloyd printed for the first time news about safe routes, demand for raw materials in certain ports and insurance premiums charged by the providers of goods. At the time, Lloyd’s News, as it was called in the print form, was the first newspaper ever published in London.
Traders continued to discuss business and especially insurance policies concluded in Lloyd’s Diner after his death in 1713. In 1774 the participants in these discussions decided to found a committee that will set the company of famous Lloyd, one of the oldest and longer lasting business associations in the world.
It is worth stopping in front of the Lloyd’s, on Lime Street. The old facade of the building has been strengthened and preserved, and beyond it, you can see the futuristic building. Inside, there are the offices in open spaces and dozens of ramps and escalators. In the middle “ring” there is a huge clock perched on six pillars which guards the passage of time, because Lloyd’s Building is a time machine. Only on the ground floor, in a corner, a café reminds of the beginnings of this business.
Today, Lloyd’s of London is considered the leader in marine insurance and other specialized types, but the work is quite different from the more common insurance segment.
