Royal Albert Hall



One of the many palaces in the Kensington district, the Royal Albert Hall is the central point of the international performing arts and music within the United Kingdom. Its architectural design is equally amazing, conformed by its large circular body and its mixture of Greco-Roman neoclassical with English Edwardian. Taking advantage of its geometric shape with its axis located in its center, events are traditionally executed in front of a system of several levels of seats that border it completely.

The Gherkin - Lloyd's Building - Walkie Talkie



Following next, a selection of three emblematic buildings of London, each of them considered as the most disruptive of its time. The first one is the Lloyd's Building, an interesting example of an architectural style known as Bowellism, whose conception is that of saving space on the interior by putting the stairs, service cores and other materials in the exterior, which makes the facade less importance in the overall design. The second one is the famous Gherkin, a large glazed bullet that completely broke the former logic of the City of London, in addition to being considered one of the emblematic buildings of the new world modern architecture between the 1990s and the 21th Century. And the last one, the 20 Fenchurch St., better known as Walkie Talkie for its suggestive shape, who has the Sky Garden within its last floors with spectacular views of London.
