Rothschild HQ opens as St Paul’s becomes open-air debating chamber

The contrasting life of the City of London illustrated by the recent opening of Rem Koolhas’ headquarters for the Rothschild Bank and the open-air seminar taking place today on the steps of St Paul’s. Interesting to see how empty some public spaces have become. The centre of the City of London used to be the place that people left at weekends and evenings, now life has returned perhaps for the first time since before the bookshops by St Paul’s were destroyed in the blitz.
