Lloyds of London

Exhibition model completed in 1986 as Lloyds was under construction. Model built by Richard Threadgill and team while partner at Tetra Associates. The model shows all external detail including glazing bars in relief, photo-etched atrium structure and access stairs and platforms, eccentrically reducing ductwork and ‘hoovers’. The ‘stainless steel’ cladding is vacuum plated and lacquered with pearl-essence. The model is mounted on a circular base which turns and stops periodically.

The model has been on display almost continuously since completion - at the V & A, Pompidou Centre, Royal Academy, etc. and currently at Lloyds.
