Admire 30 Cannon Street

Yesterday, English Heritage announced the listing of 14 of what it deems the finest post-war office buildings in England by the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, including four in London. One of those chosen for listed status was 30 Cannon Street, built for Credit Lyonnais to designs by Whinney, Son & Austen Hall between 1974 &1977, when it was the world's first building clad with glass reinforced concrete.

Elsewhere, Peter Foggo's 1 Finsbury Avenue in the City of London was also listed, as was the fantastic 1968 Civil Aviation Authority House, by Richard Seifert & Partners, found just off Kingsway, Camden London and the rather more dull Brown Shipley on Moorgate.
