The Shard Baby's diagram thread

When I was three years old I found love in London and it's landmarks.
When I was four I started using Microsoft Paint 1995.
When I was seven I started using Microsoft Paint 2003.
When I was eight I found Shard London Bridge Tower, 'The Shard of Glass'.
When I was nine I drew my first skyscraper 'diagram', the Empire State Building.
When I was eleven I started following the construction of London Bridge Tower 'The Shard of Glass'.
When I was eleven I found SkyscraperCity.
When I was twelve I drew the first of my famous Shard diagram.
Whilst I was still twelve I compiled my first diagram time-lapse.
When I was thirteen I met The Leadenhall Team of Roger Stirk Harbour + Partners.
When I was fourteen I started my first HD construction diagram time-lapse for The Shard.
When I was fifteen I had work experience with The Leadenhall Team at Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners.
When I was sixteen I created my first HD diagrams, after I had finished my GCSEs.
Now I'm seventeen I have worked alongside construction teams on various tall building projects within the London area, worked within world–renowned architecture practices, met professional skyscraper photographers and post skyscraper diagram updates nearly every week. So what's next for me? Possibly to fulfill my dreams to become the chief architect of the future's next world's tallest building?

Welcome to the thread and I hope you enjoy my diagrams :

TSB, definitely get yourself acquainted with Sketchup. Speak to pompeyfan, who seems to be the man on that app.

Pretty sure it's just 'Lloyds', as there is no apostrophe between the 'd' and the 's' (check their website).

Do I get a Pilchard Point?

I commend your enthusiasm, though.

Hmm! You sounded like you were talking about Lloyds TSB, not the Lloyd's Building.

Difference.

For someone who is the same age as me and has had an intrest in skyscrapers (I became intrested in them when I was about 9 aswell) I wish I was as good as you.

P.S how come you got to visit the Leadenhall Building?

P.S.S My friend's Dad had a major role in the building of the Heron Tower and the Leadenhall Building!

The construction manager, David Hiddleston, noticed me taking notes on one of my Leadenhall Building diagrams just outside the site. I talked with him for a while about my work before I went with him to introduce myself and my diagrams to The Leadenhall Team at Roger Stirk Harbour + Partners in the site offices.
They then brought me on to site to see the basement construction works which were going on then at the time .
