Inside London's new 'glass egg'

Postby Paul Clerkin » Wed Jul 17, 2002 4:15 pm

Take a 360 degree tour of London's new City Hall, a striking glass and steel structure on the south bank of the River Thames.

Ken Livingstone and the Greater London Authority have moved into their new home, a futuristic structure beside Tower Bridge that has been likened to an egg, a fencing mask - and even once described as a "glass testicle" by Mr Livingstone.

Bah Humbug. What's the point in making a building look like Judge Dredd's helmet?
