Forget the huge Wallbrook Building, alias Darth Vader's Helmet. (It was designed by Lord Foster and became perhaps most famous for its protracted inability to attract a tenant after its completion in 2010.) Instead consider the Church of St. Stephen Wallbrook, designed by Christopher Wren and built just after the Great Fire to replace a previous church. Pevsner calls it "the most majestic of his parish churches." The building has always been squeezed by its neighbors. Pevsner writes that its "present exterior with its rough masonry and brickwork hardly hints at the grandiose interior" (1:260).
