The new U.S. Embassy in London will open later this year and from the moment it was announced it sparked controversy, the wvtm13.com website reported.

First, because of its astounding $1 billion price tag and secondly because of its modern design.

The embassy, which resembles a giant glass cube, is located in a former industrial site, located on the southern bank of the Thames river just east of the iconic Battersea Power station

It was designed by the Philadelphia-based architecture firm Kieran Timberlake and it includes a ring of ponds and gardens around its perimeter.
