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.
When I was still twelve I made my first diagram time-lapse.
When I was thirteen I met Roger Stirk Harbour + Partners.
Now I'm sixteen I have met construction managers, 'professional skyscraper photographers', post skyscraper diagram updates nearly every week, what's next for me...possibly my dreams to be the architect of the world's tallest building.

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

Baby Shard you rock... I really appreciate your drawings on the various threads...

I remember my passion for architecture developed through drawing diags like these back in good old microsoft 'paint', one pixel at a time many years ago... good days

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?

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, saw me with my diagram, talking to some traffic marshals and brought me to see Roger Stirk Harbour + Partners to show them my diagrams.
They then brought me on to site .
