trouble with uk is, every building has to be bloody iconic or artistic in a way - thats why there are less in london compared to all the other countrys etc

wouldnt you rather have a building that was iconic or artistic, than a building that in 10 or 12 years half the population of the city dispises?

i know what i would rather have

Well put.
When this building is complete, I'll be able to see it from my bedroom!

This is just to give an image of how the construction is getting along. The cores are getting there. It also gives scope to the immense width of the curved building and perhaps height as well

I still can't really comprehend this building. All the renderings make it look tall and squished, but yet the thing they're actually building looks really wide. I'm sure it will be aswesome when finished though.
