Lloyd's building (London, UK)
The Lloyd's building also known as the 'Inside-Out' building is the headquarters of insurance company, Lloyd's of London.
Designed by architect Richard Rogers, it was built between 1978 and 1986.
The building is unique with services such as staircases, lifts, electrical power conduits and water pipes on the outside, making the interiors uncluttered.
The twelve glass lifts were the first of their kind in the United Kingdom.

Accidentally found this place. Well the globe like building and the amazing escalators and moving sidewalks up really couldn't be passed up. We enjoyed the view for a small price and enjoyed walking around to take a peek. We really didn't understand much as it was in Japanese but great photo opportunities and some insight into some TV sets.

nice place to go up and see the rainbow bridge and north side odaiba in general from above. The price to go up is reasonable which is a plus.
The shops were not too big, but I did manage to snag some Dragon Balls omiyage.

Fantastic view of the Rainbow Bridge and the entire Tokyo Skyline from the observatory upstairs. The entry fee is extremely cheap compared to many other locations in the city, and it is nowhere near as crowded as other observatories. Definitely a must-do photo opp for city photographers.

This is a cool landmark to visit. You can go up into the tourist area for a small ticket fee. I've seen it destroyed several times in movies so I came there to see it.
