Wrapped in Bronze-anodised Aluminium

In my previous wander around St James I spotted a metal clad building. I've taken some photos and found a few details.

66 St James's Street was designed by Rodney Gordon of Tripos Architects in 1979-82. The building was commissioned for Swiss Bank.

The distinctive exterior is not copper as I origionally thought but bronze-anodised aluminium. The current occupants are the Stern Pissarro Gallery who moved there in 2009.

First of, wow thats a nice looking building, I thought it was some sort of modern art peace, not something from the 70's!
