They foyer of One Canada Square


This description made me chuckle:

“Rather than entering a corporate reception, you feel as if you’re entering a hushed antespace of timeless power.” — Herbert Wright, Johnny Tucker, Journalist (architecture) (2016)

It’s name has also always bugged me, given its roof clearly is a pyramid. At best, the rest of the tower could be described as a rectangular prism. And it’s not even in Canada.

Rather than departing through an exit, one is left with a sense of a transient awakening that inflames the senses with hashed antipasto. — Ruben Schade, esq. (2021)
