shiny cladding would be nice, but glass is better in a viewing platform

It's not controversial, it's just a step ahead of its times

I admit at first I thought this one would have something to do with the Olympic Cauldron.

That picture is terrific. Still undecided on the tower as of now as it's still not complete but it's definately going to be a world known icon come August this year and it's certainly growing on me.

I also see Robert has once again distinguished himself as a nemesis of London.

name one!

"London eye" is a joke. Its like only for kid's carnival. Another ugly landmark with no appeal or likability factor.

while the Paris builds Effel Tower, Shanghai builds oriental pearl tower etc etc, London builds garbage after garbage architectural wise

Its hard to imagine London dont got sky needle, tower etc etc for visitors. Its the ugliest looking mega city of the world with no real notable landmarks.

Although we heard your opinion the first time, you seem strangely drawn to it, maybe unable yet to piece together that conflicting sub-concious in your mind? Perhaps you should visit it to exercise the haunting...

Walk round London one day Hindustani if you can ever afford to go.

I had the best time of my life there.

You can walk around for a whole day and not enter one single building thats how many landmarks and famous stuff there is to see.

Every corner you turn there is something you ahve read about, seen on TV/film or heard about in a song.

I know you have a vendetta against London because you a petty ****wit who uses this forum to big up NYC.

But New York has nothing in terms of landmarks compared to London.

So get of your high horse and grow up.

Ask anyone across the world including China which is more famous.

The Oriental Pearl or any of the above and they will all give you the same answer.

Knobhead.
