A monumental pile of an office building (influences of Webb’s Govt Buildings in there!) on Herbert Street, just opposite the Pepper Cannister

I walked into the city along Upper Mount Street today, and was surpised to find a building from 1980s London had been airlifted onto Herbert Street. That kind of postmodern pile is so rare here I had to look it up. It’s a Treasury building (unsurprisingly) and it’s by Arthur Gibney (surprisingly). It was built in 1997, but approved in 1991, which explains the style I suppose.
