Elephant isn't ugly as much as stupid.

The Guy's Tower in London is very ugly to me. It's just doesent fit into my view of Lonodn. Does anyone know when was it built?

Guy's tower, based in south London, is a large teaching hospital and is home to Guy's, King's & St Thomas' School of Medicine. Guy's Tower is the 11th highest building in London and was completed in 1974.

It's the place where i am studying next year, I love this building!

I just found this page by chance
I'm from Bangkok Thailand and just move to live in new condo nearby the Elephant Tower .


above pic , view from the top floor of my old condo in Bangkok out bond



Elephant tower is old tower the owner of that tower decide to make kind of different tower instead the normal building which can make more money and cheaper to build ,

I decide to live in this area because it close to the shopping store cinemas , park , Metro station and Skytrain station so I can take them going to the Bangkok metropolis ...on the bus is too jam .

maybe I talk too much , now let's see photos I taken from the Top of my condo and my balcony .












(from the top floor )
