Amen Court is in the shadow of the London Stock Exchange on the edge of Paternoster Square. It is a 1960s block of flats, a contemporary of the post-war Paternoster Square, so disliked by Prince Charles. It has gorgeous balconies covered in ceramic tiles.
There is lots of public art in Aldermanbury Square, the block designed by Eric Parry Architects. Here is a water feature, I think …..with a channel fed by a series of these vertical ducts. It boasts lots of concrete shuttering in Hayward Gallery style surrounding the water and filling the reception areas.
This building is really fun to look at. There are trademark air vents (to be compared with the Pompidou Centre) together with a colour scheme matching the Lloyds Register building twenty minutes walk away. It is worth looking up into the lift shafts at night.
