Basinghall Street
This curious building on Basinghall Street is an extension to the Guildhall by Richard Gilbert Scott.  It is described in the City of London Pevsner's Guide as follows, "... To the N of the offices is a raised precinct made over an underground car park ....

.... Between the precinct and the blocks along London Wall are the small EDUCATION and PROBATION OFFICES, linked by steps under a canopy, built respectively as an exhibition hall and justice room by Richard Gilbert Scott 1966-69.  Over the Education Office and the steps, two fanciful concrete roofs of differing heights, composed of a series of barrel-vaults resting on segmental arches and slender piers."
