The Embassy of the United States of America in London in the heart of Mayfair, a Modernist landmark designed by architect Eero Saarinen in 1960; as security does not meet legal requirements any longer, the embassy will move into a new, purpose-built complex by 2017 (a £650 million futuristic structure reminiscent of a glass cube east of the iconic Battersea Power Station)
