City Hall-London Mayor Office is the headquarters of the Greater London Authority, which comprises the Mayor of London and the London Assembly. It was opened in 2002 on the south bank of the River Thames just 2 years after of the creation of Greater London Authority.
This is a unique architectural building, unusual, bulbous shape, purportedly intended to reduce its surface area and thus to improve energy efficiency. The interior has a helical staircase. City Hall’s distinctive shape was conceived by the famous architect Norman Foster, who also designed The Gherkin and the re-built Wembley Stadium. Photographing this modern icon of London is popular with tourists.
