Aimed at 16+ this resource uses the painting Broadgate Reflections by Brendan Neiland in the Guildhall Art Gallery to explore the culture of City finance in the 1980s. The building featured in this painting is composed mainly of glass and steel. Materials used across the rest of the complex include high grade Portland stone and polished pinkish granite, which recalls the architecture of earlier financial buildings such as the Bank of England and the Royal Exchange.

There are prompts for discussion and creative activities in the resource.
