Good lord the Albert Tower is truly striking, a bit sinister for Central London though!

I think it would be too out of proportion with the Palace of Westminster

that's exactly what i thought, besides it was totally unnecessary. They probably bared these facts in mind which is why it wasn't built

It reminds me of the images they used for the bishopsgate tower - which looked similarly dynamic, but from most angles looks a lot worse... a bit like a filing cabinet (hence the name).

The Heron tower also benefits from hugely selective choice of view. The buildings I like best seem to look good from all sorts of angles - gherkin, Shard, Lloyds, Tower of London :-)
