The hulking One New Change complex next to St Paul's is a funny thing. From the outside, it's hard to love the mucky brown glazing and 'stealth ship' angles. It does, however, have redeeming features, such as the seventh floor viewing gallery overlooking the cathedral. And simply by bringing shopping back to Cheapside — the Medieval version of Oxford Street — it wins a small sigh of satisfaction from fans of geographical continuity.
One of the oddest features is hidden away at the western end of the basement level. Three mosaics by artist Boris Anrep skulk timidly behind the escalators. The trio depict our good lady sovereign, her 18th Century ancestors Mary II and William III, and a more abstract design. A further example of his work can be found up on the roof terrace.
