Description

This building is named after Brendan Bracken, former chairman of the Financial Times, who was also appointed as the Minister of Information in Winston's war time cabinet, which was published here until the 1980s. The building was among the first post-war buildings in the City of London to be listed and its redevelopment retained the entire outside fa├žade, including the elegant astronomical clock approximately 1 metre in diameter bearing at its centre a face of Winston Churchill, a personal friend of Brendan Bracken.

This work by Philip Bentham is in gilt metal and enamel.
