US envoy to the United Kingdom Robert “Woody” Johnson showed media around the new US embassy in London on Wednesday.

Slated to open Jan 16, the new 12-story potion embassy cost $1 billion — the many costly embassy ever built.

It’s been described as a bright “sugar cube” and a “modernist museum” that expresses honesty and clarity — a distant cry from the old fortresslike embassy that embodies a brutalist architectural design, according to the Washington Post.

But make no mistake — the new embassy is rarely secure and, as CBS notes, has been described as an “urban fortress.”
