    This tower is very impressive. I guess it's also known as the Swiss Re in the City, London. Am I right?
    If so, it's just in front of
    Lloyd's building

    This is a very interesting area of London where tradition lives closed to modernism.
    Cheers,

    Das sieht ja super aus. Was ist in diesem "Raketen"gebäude untergebracht? Toll gesehen und gut festgehalten. LG Susanne
