Senate House

Had Hitler won the war, it was suggested that this building would be his London HQ. Instead, it is a library and part of the University of London; if you look at the detail you’ll see it has very Egyptian features.

This building is around a 5 minute walk from my office, and I used to walk past it on a daily basis to and from work; it sometimes participates in Open House weekend as well so do try to get in here if you can; it’s an interesting building on the inside – plus at 19 floors it’s got a pretty cool view from the rooftop as well. It overlooks the British Museum and is probably the best view you will get of the museums green tinted roof.
