If this beauty was still standing, how would people rate it?

It hasn't been built, and I hope it won't because it's horrible.

Shard is one of my favourite towers. Definitely worthy of the attention it gets I think!

^I don't think the shard would get half the attention it gets if it was built outside Europe. First supertall in europe=fame.

I disagree. It's a good looking tower and any city would be lucky to have it

Yeah it's overrated. Maybe if it was the pinnacle of pyramidal shaped buildings and set a height standards, but none of the above, it's just a nice looking tower.

The Shard is a great tower and deserves the praise it gets. It most certainly is not overrated. I would love to have it in my City.

It's a beautiful skyscraper, it would be stunning if it was located in Rotterdam or Saigon, but IMO too many people praise it as a masterpiece... I don't really agree with that, it's nice, but that's it.

That's not concrete, that limestone. Go learn some facts about the building before you speak shit about it.

Also, those pics don't do justice when you've seen them in person.

You simply can't say ESB isn't special. It was one of the most complex buildings at its time. Building ESB (so as Chrysler Building) was not as "easy" as it is nowadays. Also, the design is very special: as far as I know ESB is the only Art Deco supertall (if you consider that Chrysler Building is something like a mixture of Art Deco and Beaux-Arts or something like that). Plus, ESB has some very interesting history behind.

Not liking it, and saying its shit are two different things.

---

BTW, this is not so special:



Too many buildings with the same design...
