City Hall, London

Designed by Lord Foster and opened in 2002, City Hall is the headquarters of the Greater London Authority. Located near Tower Bridge, the 45 metre high steel and glass structure is not to everybody’s taste and former Mayor of London Ken Livingstone once referred to it as a “glass testicle”. More than one commentator has noted that the building is a statement on transparent government!
