Swiss Re and 99 Bishopgate which is one of my favourite mid-rises. Alot of the city towers don't appeal to me.

Lloyds building, my favourite piece of architecture ever. I have never seen another building that just takes my breath away everytime I see it!

The Swiss Re and Tower 42 are stunners as well and I do like the Barbican, being a bit of a fan of brutal 60s architecture!

Lombard Street and Aldersgate are minging!
